    Countdown Timer to School Holidays

    Hi Everyone,

    I would like to create some kind of countdown (java)script? Or Flash file that will countdown to the school holidays. Something that I can easily modify at the start of a new term etc to allow for new countdown date.

    I want to use it to display on the digital signage around the school. With some kind of countdown showing, Days/Hours/Minutes/Seconds etc to a certain time on a certain date.

    In our first case this will be 15:25 on the 9th Febrary. I have found similar scritps on Internet Sites to put onto MySpace style profiles, but they only seem to work to Midnight and unable to change the time.

    It would also be nice to change the countdown to something like "Enjoy the School Holidays" once the countdown has reached the time.

    Any pointers or tips ??

    Cheers,

    Matt

    Re: Countdown Timer to School Holidays

    Thanks for the links, kinda what I'm after, but think it needs to look a bit better! More of a Wow Factor to it! This is to fill quite a large area on some screens around the school, not just a little section on a website.

    Any other links or counters people have seen? i'm thinking off something more on the lines of the examples shown in this link http://www.wishafriend.com/countdown/fun/ but these can only be setup for a certain date, and can't specify a specific time on a date.

    Would it be hardwork (Not having any background using flash) to create something like this myself?

    Cheers,

    Matt

    mattpant: Since it's HTML and CSS you can change the font, style and size to whatever you want.
