Quick calendar app

I often need to take a quick look at a calendar. Normally that leads to a double click on the time in the Windows task bar. But even that only gives me a view of one month. It sucks.

I banged together a quick app which will show me the an easy view of the current, previous, and next 7 months – just look at the screenshot.

I purposefully wanted to keep it very simple, so that’s all it does. (I actually added a little text file to bold the South African public holidays. You can easily add any dates you like to that file.)

Now when I want to quickly check out dates I just use Launchy to open this app. Very quick and very easy. Escape closes it and I’m done in seconds.
