The Amazing Days Alive Calculator

Bonus Poem

We can count up to ten, we can count to a hundred
and these are two numbers that we understand
And we can take one, multiply by the other,
and in this way get ourselves up to a grand

But much more than that and it starts to lose meaning
the mind just can't feel the big numbers it knows
I guess it's just that we get too far away from
our trusty friend old Mister Fingers and Toes

And so we use years when we count up our birthdays
but then there's the problem of having so few
and really it's days we have, that's what we're spending
and every day we get one brand spanking new

So don't let too many days spin off uncounted
This year thing is nonsense, a terrible trap
We hope that each one of your days will be happy
except that there's bound to be some filled with crap


Ever wonder how many days you've been alive?

Please note, this Days Alive Calculator calculates the total number of days you have been alive, NOT the number of days OLD you are. There is a difference of one day. For example, the day you were born was your first day alive on earth. But you're not one day old until 24 hours have passed, i.e., until the next day. Capisce?

Enter your birthday:

Year (YYYY):
Month (MM):
Day (DD):

This this was really cool to do. I sent it to some friends and did a few birthdays for my family members. Its a cool time killer, too. =]

5 million lines of code rofl, this isn't that hard...I wrote a program in Pascal 7 that will tell you the day of the week when you enter the date, and it took me like 5 hrs...only because i'm not that good.

Eeeee, you know I don't think I ever thought of using the Days Alive Calculator to calculate the number of days since other things. Congratulations on such a fine run of marriage!

11 February 2008 20:08:58 MR

I have been married 14502 days. We celebrate every day!

Nice work Abby and John! Great program. I have a programming assignment at University to basically make what you have here, and all I can say is "My I hate leap years!" - just got it all finished, but leap years perplexed me for a good ten-fifteen minutes! Nice work, and thanks for the great 'testing partner'! ^_^

The counter methodology is entirely intentional, I assure you! It is called the "Days Alive" calculator, not the "Days Old" calculator, for a reason. It is the number of distinct days you have been on the planet, including your first one, and including today. That does make it one more than an age calculation, since you wouldn't be "one day old" until 24 hours into the game. But the day you were born counts as a day that you were alive here at Bonkworld.

You are off by 1, it is a common mistake. The counter is counting the day you are born as 1, instead of 0. Therefore it is not saying how old you are, or how long you have been on this earth. It would be more accurate if you wold change that. Please do!
