DatePicker is a system utility for calculating the difference between dates. It calculates the difference in Business days, week days, actual days, weeks, months, years. A difference can be found or set so the the next interval can be found.
A basic stopwatch has been included for the times when you just wanted to calculate the approximate time a task will take. It can be started and stopped just like a real stopwatch. A basic log of times is maintained incase you need to add up multiple events.
Business days are calculated using holidays local to your town/city/state/country. Sample holiday files for Australia have been included but you can create your own if your like.
Local events can be added (and downloaded) to help you keep track of the event you should know about. Really handy when working out your next holiday.
A set of countdown timers can be set to that you can track to the next major event - second by second. If you've ever let a minor holiday like Christmas pass you by - you can count down the shopping days to the nearest second.

Month by Month view allow you to find the difference in days, business days and weeks between two dates. If you need to work on a standard number of days between events, then click the "Lock difference" box and the difference calculated will be used between the two date pickers.
Stopwatch is used for basic timing. You can start and stop multiple times between timings. When you reset the timer, the times will be dumped into the log panel. Not that fancy but we've found anything more just got in the way.
Holidays is used to enter actual public holidays. These are used in business days calculation and show up as bolded fields within the Month by Month field with a mouse over description of the holiday. You can edit the ones provided (which goes out to 2012) or make up a new holidays file from scratch. If you make one for your region email it to us and we will include in on the website for others to download.
Events are like holidays but are not normally public holidays. We've included our favourite sporting events for us - but unless you live in Melbourne Australia, you will probably want to maintain your own. Like holiday files, if you make one for your region email us the file and we include in on the website for others to download.
Countdown timers can be set up for any events you may be waiting for. Though we included some token events like Christmas 2003, we've used it for birthday present buying, next company dinners and product deadlines.
