Little mistake there!Cf. rather than c.f.!
This doesn't really explain it, but I think it may add some thoughts to the ring:
I was there for a while. _c.f._ I was there for long. I won't be there for a while. _c.f._ I won't be there for long.
In this case while works in both cases. But has quite different meanings. In the first it suggests you were in the place for a long time. In the second it suggests you will not be in that place until a time a while away. Strange hey?
