  • (2020-01-22) Gavin Wiener: This might just be me but I think it would be better if the day, month, year did not clear after you click generate. Sometimes I want to increment one of the values and generate another number. Having the generated ID below the inputs makes a bit more sense to me. Thanks for the tool! Works as expected

    Evan! Small world - just installed your Chrome add-on and it rocks. Nice to see your name here. A small suggestion (if you can still be arsed about this) - change "Male" tick-box to a slider (Male/Female).
