You can specify reverse order through the API when you slice the cols so I don't think you need to write a comparator.

Thanks Aaron,

Yes I can put the column names without using the userId in the
timeline row, and when I want to retrieve the row corresponding to
that column name, I will attach the userId to get the row key.

Yes I'll store it as a long & I guess I'll have to write with a custom
comparator type (ReversedIntegerType) to sort those longs in
descending order.
