  function convert_date ($date, $type='short') { 
    $month_list['short'] = array ('', 'Jan.', 'Feb.', 'Mar.', 'Apr.', 
      'May', 'June', 'July', 'Aug.',' Sept.', 'Oct.', 'Nov.', 'Dec.'); 
    $month_list['long'] = array ('', 'January', 'February', 'March', 
      'April', 'May', 'June', 'July', 'August', 'September', 'October', 
      'November', 'December'); 
    list($year, $m, $day) = split("-", $date);     
    $date = $month_list[$type][intval($m)] . " " . $day . " " . $year;
