Precise timekeeper

Monitor every last second of past and future events with this program.

Ever wonder how many seconds you've been alive? Or how many minutes until school starts next month? Date Time Counter is a simple program that calculates every conceivable time angle on an event, whether it is in the past or the future.

Despite its simplistic layout, this program's interface is a bit confusing at first because it lacks any user guidance. A blank grid sits under a row of command buttons. The icons include New, Save, Calculator, Modifier, and other commands. Users will want to start with the New button. A simple box pops up when a new entry is created, prompting users to enter the name of the event, a date and time, and whether it is a future or past event. After that, it appears on the screen with all the data filled in, counting up or counting down to the event. For example, someone who entered his birthday will have all of the columns filled, even down to the seconds adding up from your birth. The program also includes a monitor for how long you are working on a project as well as a calculator that can add the time between two specific dates together.

The program offers a 36-use trial, which should be ample time to learn the program, even with some of its navigation issues. Sure, it has limited appeal, but if you have a burning need for calculations like this, Date Time Counter is for you.
