On the Photogapple.co.uk blog today, there's some handy code that can definitely be useful when working with dates in PHP - a function to find the difference between the current time and a timestamp you give it.

I found it incredibly difficult to find any form of time_since function in php so to save anyone else the trouble to hunting through hundreds of useless websites here is the function you may want to use, written by Natalie Downe (you don't want to know how long it took to hunt it down).

The function takes in the value, subtracts the two timestamps and loops through an array of "time chunks" to each other to show nicely formatted output of how long the difference it.
