Help with Coding - New widget request (3 posts)

    Hello there, dear community!

    I'm running the private blog at errorblog.com and just came up with an idea unfortunately I'll never be able to implement. So I thought I'd just ask here, maybe some of you cracks like the idea:

    A widget, that allows me to keep track of how old the information is that I blogged.
    So if I blogged a link to some Led Zeppelin video on youtube I can add to a database, that "this is 30yr old" - when I post something personal it would be the actual posting-timestamp.

    My idea behind this is that I blog a lot about older and newer music and I'd like to collect some statistics, on how close I follow the mainstream, meaning a simple calculation of when a song was published and then blogged compared to the mean of all posted songs/band in my blog.

    I hope you got it - my english is quite bad and i apologize for that. Anyway: I'm not capable of more than simple html so this will only happen, when some of you freaks decide to create this. I can't offer any money, but I'd be extremely grateful! :)

    btw: as far as my unerstanding goes, it'd not take more than a rating-plugin changed to not take a pre-defined number but a timestamp. A simple script should do the rest:

    - (Actual Posting Timestamp) - (Entered Info Timestamp) = (Age of Info)

    - mean deviation: ((Age of Info)+(n * Age of Info) / n) = X yr (The mean deviation of how old the information on my blog is, concerning all entries)

    - Standard Deviation of the Mean: Showing in every Posts, how many years it's away from the mean deviation. For example "Tokio Hotel is 20yr away from your SDM of 15yr" ;)

    greets, martin
