Change timestamp format

Is there an easy way to change the timestamp that shows up on posts.
now my typo site displays the time of a post as 6 days ago. It seems
older posts do show up as Tuesday, April 18, 2006, whch is the format
like it to always have, but I’d like to add the time. Same with
it say things like 15 days later, I’d rather it just say Friday, May 21,
2006 at 2:34 pm. Is this a function of typo or the theme?

It’s part of the theme.

I’m customizing Scribbish for a theme for my Typo blog. Here’s what I
did when I wanted the same thing you do:

In typo/themes/peekle/views/articles/_article.rhtml I changed this block

Posted by <%= author_link(article) %> <%= js_distance_of_time_in_words_to_now article.created_at %>

to read

Posted by <%= author_link(article) %> on <%= article.published_at %>

This results in the kind-of graceless but pretty geeky byline

You can also use article.published_at.strftime to get better control
over the format. Run ‘ri strftime’ or ‘man strftime’ to see all of
the options.
