in reply to Free Nodelet Hack: Set Timestamp for Newest Nodes

I just noticed one can set his own Format for date-times in User Settings which could cause the regex to fail because the setting also has an effect on the displayed node creation time.

When not set, the default setting for the date format on PM currently is "%b %d, %Y at %H:%M %Z" (i.e. 'Nov 13, 2005 at 01:23 CET').
Using "%b %d, %Y at %H:%M:%S %Z" to also show the seconds would still work.

The javascript expects the variable 'timestr' to be in the format of "%b %d, %Y %H:%M:%S" or "%b %d, %Y %H:%M" (i.e. 'Nov 13, 2005 01:23') to convert the time string into unix time (aka epoch seconds).

[Eily]: what, there's a difference between proof of concept and production?
[LanX]: 20 years ago traders were complaining about the latency of the trading system...
[ambrus]: I'm currently in the process of rewriting my proof of concept programs. They sort of developped organically as I was experimenting, so now I've got an ugly mess of multiple programs and one-liners held together by nothing. I'll have to rewrite them to som
[ambrus]: ething that's both cleanly organized and mostly automated.
LanX in train, bad connection
