I'm intrigued by the idea of "Today+." I just never seem to get everything done in a single day, but if I could get a day+ I just might cram it all in.

Well, the first one on the list that had a "Today+" also said:

"The total time will be no more than 75 minutes."

So as I understand it, it'll possibly be more than a day -- but no more than "75 minutes". Already an anomaly.

Thank you, Mr. Klein, for noticing. I was afraid I was the only one. That said, the entire website seems a shining and glorious example of 1998.

I wonder who's in charge of this area of the website.

Re: Thank you, Mr. Klein...

Yeah, the thing really needs a complete overhaul.
