[edit] PHP

I like programming PHP. If you need a nice little PHP function to link from your own homepage to the geohashes of a certain day in the past, here it is:

  function geohashing_textlink( $my_date = -1 , $klasse = "" ){
      /* a text link to a special day 
         Parameters: $my_date (optional):  2 the day after tomorrow
                                           1 tomorrow
                                           0 today
                                          -1 yesterday and so on
                                          -2 the day before yesterday 
                     $klasse (optional):   CSS Class for the link */

      $complete_date 
          = mktime(0, 0, 0, date("m"), date("d") + $my_date, date("Y"));   

      //check inputs
      if ( $my_date > 3 ){ $my_date = 0; }
      $klasse = trim( $klasse ); 

      //build link
      $text   =  date("j.n.Y" , $complete_date );  
 
      $outp  = "<a href=\"http://wiki.xkcd.com/geohashing/";
      $outp .= date("Y-n-j" , $complete_date ) . "\"";
      $outp .= " target=\"_blank\"" ;

      if ( $klasse != "" ){ $outp .= " class=\"" . $klasse . "\""; }

      $outp .= " >" . $text .  "</a>" ;

      return( $outp );
  }

Other Version with Date as input:

  function geohashing_textlink2( $my_year , $my_month , $my_day , $klasse = "" ){
      /* a text link to a special day 
         Parameters: Year, Month and Day
                     $klasse (optional):   CSS Class for the link */
      $complete_date 
          = mktime(0, 0, 0, $my_month, $my_day, $my_year);   

      //... continue like the function above
