How do I convert RSS feed timestamps to relative timestamps or "time ago", for example: "12 minutes ago?" [more inside]

Not that I want those two minutes back or anything.

Technical/pedantic football (soccer) question: In tonight's Albania v Holland Euro 2008 qualifier, six minutes of stoppage time was indicated, if I am not mistaken. However, the referee blew the final whistle after what I believe was less than 94 minutes, after a spectator threw fireworks at or near a player. This incident seemed to be the direct reason for the ref to call it a game. Given that according the Laws, the indicated stoppage time is a minimum, shouldn't this game technically be considered terminated or abandoned?

Bonus question: what exactly is the difference between a "terminated" and an "abandoned" game?

I'm quaveringly staring at your crotchet: 3/4 vs. 6/8 time signatures in music

Yeah, but what's the real difference between 3/4 and 6/8 time? [more inside]
