The super simple birthday and anniversary reminder program.

Main Window

BDay is a simple program to help you track birthdays and anniversaries. It runs when you start or log in to your computer, displays any events that are coming up, and then exits when you click OK. It does not hang around in the system tray or as a background process taking up your computer’s resources. If there are no events to be displayed, then you wont even see BDay run.
