Seriously...I have never known this before. Thanks for that.

By the way Florian, just to make it clear - when I said "shortcut" I
mean the mini-language. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

You are right. "+2w +3d" does not work, you have to "+17d", which seems
to be stupid sometimes...

I personally usually just look at the small calendar and type a date,
such as 3/21 or 3-21 and it will be recognized.
