Kovid – The descent

March 17th was already a date of note in my calendar, it was the date that my father’s mother passed away. Other circumstances intertwined with this sad event and probably secured the fledgling application that became Kobas. That is a story for another time, but the date now has another annual reminder set for me, […]
