Anyone you know graduating?

We are currently working on a new Online Timer which will complement our existing Countdown services. This version is now working and functional, but we will add many more features in the coming weeks.

Repeating Months – Reuse calendars

Our new Repeating Months service shows how often month/weekday combinations repeat themselves. One example is that January 2011 and October 2011 look the same.
