Nice. Esp. since I already have a (deactivated) timer for Apr. 30 in my 
timers. ;)

While you're breaking compatibility anyway, please consider allowing 
bi-weekly timers that only fire every second (fourth?) week. This is a 
far more common case.

Format suggestion:
MTWTFSS*n  (fire on next matching day, then skip n times/weeks)
MTWTFSS*n at YYYY-MM-DD (fire on YYYY-MM-DD, then skip n times/weeks)
