When a story is posted the date is listed in the following example:
Posted by timothy on Wednesday February 11, @01:09PM
Is there any way that you can add the year to the date listed? Otherwise the only way to know the year of a given story is to look in the URL. For example, "http://tech.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=08/09/22/1448226&tid=109"
