Hi, Brad --

Back in December 2009 I posted the Topic, shown below. From all the talk about how unreliable and difficult the countdown clocks that people were using are, I figured an embedded countdown clock would be something folks would be interested in. But no replies, so what can I say.

To see what the countdown clock in action, go to our homepage,

Our Reunion is just 83 days away, and I'll be taking this feature off our website when our Reunion has come and gone. (Or will perhaps reverse it, as "It's been 207 days since our Reunion.") If you want to see it, go there now.

It seems that this would be a good addition to the ClassCreator feature set. And it seems like it would be easy to implement.

How about it ?

To do this, you need to know how to edit the source code.
At the beginning, copy and paste this javascript code (everything between the two
