The highlighted item is no more than 1 hour old, as measured by the time of its first appearance on the front page.

Highlighting to find new stuff would work better if each article could show up highlighted at most once. For instance "The Original Microsoft Windows 1.0 Press Release" is highlighted and marked as "0 hours ago" both at 05:00 and 06:00.

This is only a temporary hack. I only added "new" detection after it had been going several hours but once enough time has passed, I'll remove the hack based on hours under 2.
