The date strings are all shown as relative time. I can hover over them to see the absolute time, but I'd rather see just the opposite: I'd rather see the absolute time and (maybe) have the hover effect show the relative time. It is useful for copy/paste of the history to be able to capture the absolute time. Other than that, I just have a preference to see the absolute time. That is, I'd rather see:

Yes, and it can be done pretty easily using some CSS like:

a[href*="activity"][title*=":"]:before {
  content: ' [' attr(title) '] ';
}

in a theme. Note that this works (with modern browsers) on all datetime links to activity pages.

Mischa.
