I am not happy with the "hover" for year solution.
- For example, search for "pex". Most hits are old. How do I find/subset the recent ones? I cannot search for 2012 because 2012 is not in the string.
- It's just non-intuitive because one has to just "know" that the code behind is computing and presenting omitting the year. Not all sites do this!
It's a bit better for me now that I know so better, but I would prefer that to highlight that 'this post is current' that emphasis be added rather than data removed.
Thus, I advocate having bold or italic or underline on dates that are current. That would be even easier.
