For a long while now I've been trying to find some sort of solution to having a countdown clock on my blog (http://happyquark.com). I've done quite a bit of research and I am well aware that.
1. People have been requesting a countdown widget for long before I arrived and wordpress has yet to oblige.
3. The only HTML-only countdown clocks are absolutely hideous and practically useless. The ones I am referring to are detailed here: http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2008/03/11/how-to-add-a-countdown-ticker-to-your-blog/
If I can't do this, is there any conceivable way to get some sort of countdown timer working? I have to imagine it is possible considering that the ugly ones work, so by what method are they getting an updating counter in strictly html?
The blog I need help with is happyquark.com.
