Whatever happened to Internet Explorer 1.0???

Help help, i'm being repressed!

Yay! I've been released!
Now programming security glue-code in perl and PHP on openBSD and Linux. Open source rules!

[james28909]: ok i have a new question ;)
[james28909]: i am not sure how to ask google this either
[james28909]: i am getting the current time on my machine with scalar localtime;
[james28909]: i am scraping a website and retrieving a date stamp of an article.
[james28909]: well time/data stamp of the article
[stevieb]: james28909: what's the problem/question?
[james28909]: it is not an absolute date like "27" or "31". sometimes it is like wednesday or friday
[james28909]: and i need to format those special instances into an absolute date instead of "yesterday"
