A Wheel of Lunch That Works

I've always got a coffee/lunch/dinner date with someone and absolutely no preference as to where we meet. I need a Random Number Generator for food. Perhaps it could pull from the Yelp API.

"Relative Time" application

Improve how time is stored in PoorMike's. Not everything is related to a calendar year.

Who is that person??

It should ...more »
