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.

    *This tape is by no means perfect….I never originally seeded it because it has FM reception flaws and mild distortion at
    points. I was wearing the DAT and radio in my pack top with headphones in the middle of the crowd.
    It is being seeded due to a large volume of requests for the FM source for this show, and we haven’t seen an alternative surface yet.
    I’m not letting this out as any definitive tape…people just told me they wanted it, and I wanted to make them happy. If someone has a
    better FM, please let it out until the band releases something definitive. – DS
