Human-friendly time period descriptions

Thought I’d post this as it might be useful to someone else as well.

I was looking for a way to convert the difference in duration between two times, in seconds, to a friendly, human-readable form such as “2 weeks, 3 days, 1 hour and 11 minutes” similar to the way distance_of_time_in_words() does for past times in DateHelper.

I couldn’t find one already made so I wrote my own:

](http://www.postal-code.com/binarycode/2007/04/04/english-friendly-timespan/)

I think this sort of thing might be useful to others if included in DateHelper. Thoughts?

Cheers
Chris
