"Timestamps" in "my comments": The quasi-timestamps in "my comments" are wrong. The early ones are right "This morning"/"12 Hours ago"/ "7 Hours Ago" etc.

But then at some point it seems to reset and comments from yesterday are listed as "This morning" and "4 hours ago". It looks like it's only taking time into account and not the date?

I see this too.

Can I just say that I love the randomness of the time units used in "My Comments"? Especially all the "almosts".

greater than 12 hours but less than 1 day old stuff was labeled "this morning" as a way to guess at the time of a comment, but I changed it to "more than 12 hours ago"

switch( rand() % 4 ) {
    case 0:
        return "This morning";
    case 1:
        return (rand() % 60) + " seconds ago";
    case 2:
        return (rand() % 60) + " minutes ago";
    case 3:
        return (rand() % 7) + " days ago";

Since I don't know CF, I couldn't decide if this joke should be C or Perl. So it's both!
