Translating output of MySQL -> English

Okay, I have a table called ENTRIES, and to get the date, I'm using the code:

PHP Code:
$result mysql_query("SELECT `TIMEPOSTED` FROM `ENTRIES` WHERE `ID`='".$x."'");
$row mysql_fetch_row($result);
to retrieve the time a blog entry was made. Now, this usually outputs something funky like "2005-02-22 13:15:26"

Can I translate this into "February 2, 2005 1:15 PM" somehow?

And furthermore, If I were to make a query so people could select what month they'd want to see entries from, could I write a good query to find that?

To translate a date use this:

$timeposted = date("d.m.Y \a\t H:i:s ",strtotime($row[0]));

This will reformat the timestamp variable and make it in any kind you want. See for details on the date function. d=day, m=month, Y=year, H=hour in 24 hour format, and so on. See for details.
