Changing timestamp formats

Hello,
How can I format a timestamp from this: 11/27/2006 2:56:03 PM, to where it reads: Posted X Days, Y Hours Ago.

Is there a simple javascript function that will do that?  I receive the timestamp as a JSON object and am pretty sure its a string, but it could be a DATE/TIME Format.  thanks!

var d = new Date(timeStamp)
var now = new date()
anHour = 60*60*1000;
aDay = anHour*24
var diff =(now.getTime()-d.getTime())

var diffInHours = diff%aDay; //
var days = parseInt(diff/aDay)
document.write('posted '+days+((days==1)?"":"s")+", "+diffInHours+((diffInHours==1)?"":"s")+" ago")
