That's neat! I've seen a site that keeps track of exactly what the date is on the Mayan calendar; maybe someone could create a site that would run a clock to give you the time and date for their own concalendar.

Some of the dates I remember using as examples for my original Kankonian site were A.D. 476 (fall of the Western Roman Empire), 1453 (fall of the Byzantine Empire and official end of the Middle Ages), 1969 (first Terran to walk on the moon) and 1984 (title of the Orwell novel). As for the planet site: I've discovered it only allows you to deal with one moon. Will that ruin the accuracy of calculating the length of a day for a two-mooned planet? If so, can I just add together the masses of the two moons to give an accurate representation?
