This is slightly different on FreeBSD: date -v-2w Which means minus two weeks. You could also ask for something like four hours ahead 3 days ago. date -v-3d -v+4H

I am new in the app development area and I did a course on Android development also. But for now, I want to make a transsexual dating site and I don't have any idea about the website development. Do you know any good and affordable website developers for my site?

Most guys around the world would like to meet an asian brides. So I decided to take action because I think asian brides are beautiful. Surprisingly, I didn't have any difficulty as I knew I had to approach these guys. They are the ones who are truthful and don't cheat. Thanks to them, I met a girl that I have been in contact with for over a year now and we are even planning to start a life together.
