About the Redesign

If you visited this site prior to September 15th, 2018, you've no doubt noticed that I've since launched a complete redesign of the website.

If you're not happy with the new design, I sincerely apologize. I would have preferred to keep the old desktop design, but considering the majority of my site's users are now accessing the site from small-screen, touch-enabled, mobile devices, and considering Google is now penalizing websites for not being mobile/thumb friendly, I was left with no choice but to switch to a responsive, mobile-first design.

The good news is that now that I have combined the three separate versions of the site (mobile, desktop, and ad-free member) into a single design, this will free up a ton of my time for working to make the mobile-optimized calculators more desktop/laptop friendly. In fact, some of the redesigned calculators already offer a desktop-optimized form that becomes visible when you increase the width setting of the calculator (within the "Calculator Preferences" expandable panel).

Thank you in advance for your help and patience as I work to improve the redesign.
