If you have Dunstan's Time Since installed, this plugin uses it for the title="" attributes on the comments and posts. (For WordPress 1.5) Author: Brian Meidell Author URI: http://meidell.dk/ Version 1.5: Now works without LOCK TABLE and CREATE TEMPORARY TABLE priviledges. Version 1.5.1: Can't remember what I did here Version 1.5.2: Fixed count select statement to not include spammy comments Version 1.5.3: Properly excludes track- and pingbacks Version 1.5.4: Excludes posts that are not published, even if they have comments Version 1.5.5: Fade old comments, fixed bug that wreaked havoc with Time Since Version 1.5.6: Bugfix from Jonas Rabbe (http://www.jonas.rabbe.com/) pertaining to timesince Version 1.5.7: Bugfix so old colors can be darker than new colors (stupid oversight), thanks to http://spiri.dk for spotting it. Bugfix where single digit hex would cause invalid colors, thanks to http://www.wereldkeuken.be/ for the fix. Version 1.5.8: Updated to work with WordPress 2.1 alpha by M.

    Podcasts: MSG Run Clips and Discussion [Type II Cast]

    Hello and Happy New Year! Type II is back this week with a fresh episode and it should be no surprise that we are reviewing the MSG New Year’s Eve run. After just a few days to gather our thoughts, Scotty and I sat down with guests Charlie Dirksen and Dave Calarco for almost two hours last night. With lots to talk about, we debate the best and the worst of what has become some of the most anticipated shows each year. Of course, we offer up some of the tastiest clips to supplement our discussion. And whether you are a “jaded vet” or just saw your first shows, we are sure you will enjoy this blast from the hose.

    A Special Night: Going Phishing With My Dad [WalshWords]

    I’ll do anything with my dad. He might even be my best friend.

    One thing I haven’t done with him in a long time is fishing. He loves the sport and is very good at it. In fact, he went fishing today. It’s the first of January.

    What I love is Phish. You see where I’m headed. When my dad offered to join me at the Dec. 30 Phish show at Madison Square Garden in New York, I didn’t know what to think. Did he really want to go? Did he just want to tag along so I wouldn’t be driving home from New Haven at 3 a.m. by myself? Whatever the reason, it was a touching gesture that I took him up on.
