Privacy Note: The input and calculations are taking place on your computer and don't leave your computer. (More on this way below.) You can access the secure version of this page if it makes you feel better, though. :)
This help information is concerned with what the program is doing, not the numerological significance of the calculations. For the significance, see Lynn's or others' work.

Enter birth month, day, and year in numerical format (enter July 25, 1992 as 07 25 1992). Calculation results will show up as soon as there is the minimum amount of input for that calculation, but the results aren't accurate until your input is fully accurate. If you use zeroes to pad--such as 07 for July rather than 7--the system will automatically forward you to the next field (or you can use TAB and SPACE-TAB, as with any web page).
Year requires four digits. If you're going way back in time, use 0900 for the Year 900 or 0079 for 79 AD.
Personal Year for (yyyy) =
Your personal year for a given year (such as 2010) is the recursive (repetitive) sum of the digits of your birth month, birth day (just the day, not the year), and the given year:
For a birthday of June 14 (06 14), that person's personal year for 2010 will be:
06 + 14 + 2010 = (0 + 6) + (1 + 4) + (2 + 0 + 1 + 0) = 14, then 1 + 4 = 5.
Enter full legal name at birth--first, middle, last, suffix, etc--as show on the birth certificate or other official records. For John Doe Smith III, use "the third," spell out "junior," "senior," etc--no abbreviations. Case (upper or lowercase) does not matter.
Numerological calculations of letters substitute 1 for A, 2 for B, etc. J is the 10th letter which in numerology is 1 + 0 = 1, K is 2 (11 becomes 1 + 1 = 2), etc. The letter to number chart is as such:
"Int." is the "Integrated Self" calculation and number. The "Integrated Self" is the entire name added up; for example:
John Doe = (1 + 6 + 8 + 5) + (4 + 6 + 5) = 35, then 3 + 5 = 8.
The Soul number is the sum of the vowels. Y is considered a vowel in Lynn's system (more on this below).
"Per." is the "Personality Number," which is the sum of the consonants.
The chart above shows the number of 1's, 2's, 3's, etc. in a name.
Karmic Lessons: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 Karmic Accumulation: 45
Karmic Lessons are numbers missing from the name--numbers with zero in the chart above. Karmic Accumulation is the sum of those numbers, without repetitive calculation--a 45 stays a 45, rather than a 9.
The Life Number is the sum of the birth month, day, and year.
Stress numbers occur when the integrated self, soul, personality, and life numbers are not equal to each other. A set of stress numbers occur for each pair of non-equal numbers.
The Destiny Number is the sum of the integrated self and life numbers--the sum of the entire birthday and name.
My (Kwynn's) claim is that none of your data is going back to the server--it stays on your computer / device. Technically speaking, there is no HTML "form" tag, no "action" attribute, no "submit" button or function, no AJAX, etc. My early tests in May, 2010 don't show any data in the server logs. There is most certainly not any database capability. I have trouble imagining how data could get back to the server. If anyone has any evidence that data is leaking, let me know.
You may notice that your browser tries to fill in your name, or even your birthday. It's doing that like it would for any other form if you have auto-fill on. (Note that the name on your credit card that you enter into forms is unlikely to be your full name.)
In terms of look and feel, this calculator is based on John Kostura's "2Near the Edge" (Free) Numerology Calculator. Kwynn used version 3.41 in Windows in early May, 2010.
As of 2012 (late July), I have a logo for this calculator on my home page that involves assigning colors to numbers. I am pretty sure there are a variety of such schemes. The scheme I arbitrarily and quickly picked is very likely not endorsed by my father (Lynn Buess). I got "my" scheme from the following link. Note that there is a really obnoxious ad mechanism that fires before you get to the page, but I should still cite my sources: color scheme source.
I loosely used this opposite color chart to get contrast between the foreground and background colors.
On a technical note, I'd like to acknowledge the person who suggested using HTML comments to keep extra spaces from creeping into the logo, specifically the user Boldewyn who answered "Apr 13 '10 at 12:27". See the source code of my home page to see what I mean.
