lets say it's feb 15 5:36PM and you need to know how long ago you made your New Years Resolution before just breaking it, so how many months days bla bla bla. screenshot should explain what i mean. would this be hard?

i love when you guys make mock-screenshots - it really is helpful.

to answer your question:
1) no it's not hard - this is a PERFECT coding snack project for a new programmer; i'll bet someone does it in the next week.
2) however, such programs already exist (some freeware some shareware) that do this and a bunch of other time+date calculations.
maybe search snapfiles for "date calculator" or something like that.

i'd be interested to hear the best freeware tool for such things..

-mock screen shot- cool that you like those. i will spend more than 10 min next time, i like making that kinda stuff.

i will respond backwards to these
#2 i did try tucows, yahoo and google with no freeware simple program. but i will check snapfiles.
#1 i have only coded html for simple crud pages. no real skill needed kinda stuff. so i would be new programmer, mabye too new. where would i start to learn? i learn best in person 2 person teaching, then visual and lastly reading only. again thanks for you time and help.

i'm not a fan of tucows; used to be a good place, now not so much.

snapfiles.com and webattack.com are my current favorites for finding software.  webattack is particularly good with freeware.

first result at snapfiles was the best and only real kind of thing i was looking for, at least in the first 5 pages. here is what snapfiles says:

TimeSentry is a small and simple calendar with built-in time synchronization and personal reminder options. In addition, it offers a time/date calculator to calculate the difference between two dates and times to the millisecond, and also some additional system information like uptime, UTC time and more.

License: Freeware 
Price: Free
Windows:  2000/XP
File size: 273 kb 
Author: Xtort
More: 5 other programs from this author 
Version: 2.5.0
Last update:  Jun 20, 2005  version history 
Rating: 2.5 / 5

I would say:

Great simple program. while it does have more features and options than i was looking for, they all were a suprise, especially since they all seem useful. and this is so close it is fustrating at the area i found it to fall short in. when you get your results form the date calculator came out like this:
7/26/2005  06:02:04am to 7/26/2005 11:51:04pm

Years:0
Months:0
Days:0
Hours:5
Minutes:349
Seconds:20940
MSeconds:20940000

i could find no option to vary the output to 5hrs 49min, while easy enough to figure out still missing out on the comlete "Ease" of what i am looking for. again if anyone wants to tell me where i could learn how to program i would appreciate it sooo much. thank you for your help guys.....

BTW time sentry seems like a great program so i would give it 3.75 / 5 if you could vary the output i would give it 4 to 4.5 / 5. take a look at the program to judge for your self. here is the homepage for this program : h..p://www.xtort.net/xtort/timesentry.php

hope that helps anyone

i'm sure you will be able to find an existing time/date calculator to do what you want BUT
this is still the perfect candidate for a coding snack - it's just exactly what a coding snack is all about,
so i say someone should still write this, with the intent of customizing it a bit and trying to think of how to make it slightly unique.

This caught my fancy, so here ya go:




I've attached just the EXE in one zip file (for those with .NET pre-installed or who don't want to install the program), and an Inno Setup of the program in another zip.

I've updated the program so that the two DateTime values it compares are both in Universal Coordinated Time.

You still save a new event by setting the time part of the DateTime to the correct value (if the event happened in a timezone other the one to which your PC clock is set, make adjustments accordingly).

By saving an event in UTC time, the program will report accurate time spans, even if you later change your PC's clock to a different timezone.

Looks good, going to try it out now, thanks Thmbsup

Strange, nobody mentioned 1-4a Datestat (but it doesn't work with time, just dates):

By the way, this screenshot shows that mouser registered on DonationCoder forum 2503 days ago...
