Tom3311 says it reminds him of a DOS application but for some strange reason it reminds me of an AtariST application! :P It really is an awesome little program that is worth a ten!

This program is a waste of my time but what a splendid way to waste time. Great fun and I cannot believe it is free. A pregnancy calculator. Just what I have never wanted. Thanks Eurosoft.

Can't believe stuff like this is free, just amazing and if you don't like the color scheme, it can be changed to default gray. The utility works without consuming heavy resources.
