Originally reported on Google Code with ID 57

In order to see "ago" better, color coding could be used for the time indicators:

   N yers ago     (doesn't need color)
   N months ago   (purple)
   N weeks ago    (dark purple)
   N hours ago    (light blue)
   N minutes ago  (very strong blue)

Just to remind: Whatever color you choose, keep color impaired (color deficienced)
people in mind:

Although most people see Red and Green as contrasting, those with Anomalous Trichromat
Vision Colorblindness (the most common type) will not be able to tell these colors
apart. This also goes for combination with variations of green and red, including colors
such as purple and orange.

Summary:

  - Avoid Green and Red. They may all be black to them.
  - Use strong contrasts. Some people don't see any 
    difference in colors if they are not distinct.

Few links for selecting colors:

I met you half way on this one.  I extended the age coloring to 30 days using the following
scheme.

0-2 hours: bold, green #008000
2 hours - 2 days: bold, blue #0000ff
2 days - 7 days: normal, light blue #2b60de
7 days - 30 days: normal, purple #800080
30+: normal, black #000000

I'm not interested in extending age coloring beyond 30 days.  I tried to follow your
color guidelines but I found it difficult to quickly distinguish recent changes while
trying to accommodate everyone (I'm not colorblind).  If you'd like to suggest an alternative
to the green, I will entertain that.
