One project every month - making stuff better ...

Difference in time - a plsql solution to human readable date/timestamp diff

While preparing to get the comments section done for my codemonth site, I needed something that could tell how old a comment was. Not just showing the date, but maybe showing in a bit more readable way, when the comment was from. So if you look at sites like Twitter and Facebook, comments are "dated" with strings like "1 hrs" or "1 day old" etc. So I wanted to make a small package that could do that for me.
