And mix and match other little programs and challenges as I come across them....

It’s a simple app that asks you for your birthday and then tells you, how many days to or since your birthday. What did I learn? I spent at least 30 minutes hunting down and looking up errors, caused by a tiny typo. I ought to be more careful....
