nice date function

you know the way the google and this forum presents dates? How it's
measure from the current date/time and presents nicely as "39 minutes
ago", 2 days ago, etc.? Has anyone done a gem or other library object
that I can get to do those types of dates?

It's builtin to Rails...

OMG! How sweet is rails.. You've got to be kidding me!

Thank you so much!
