    What happened to my countdown timer?

    I hope by it's absence it's not trying to tell me something.

    I see I got my timer back with the message of it ending 1 September. Will have to check the new option soon.

    Check out the site that makes the timer I have in my sig below. They have all Disney themed timers that you can chose the background and slider on. Very cute stuff!
    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.

    I gotta say I'm bummed they are closing. Other countdowns seem too big for a signature to me. Anyone know of one similar to the V50 countdowns? I really like the fact they are small.

    Amanda - Do you remember the countdown timer we used before v50? Or was I dreaming and v50 was all we ever used?

    Yeah, I remember it. I think it was coded into the old software Lou used for the forums though. It stopped working and we switched over to v50.

    At least I think...but yeah I do remember those old countdowns. The code for them was really long.

    Okay, for those of you who prefer the V50 style of countdowns:

    You can find the same style of countdown here now: MickeyPath.com: Your free Disney vacation countdown banner

    Thanks for finding that, Amanda!

    For anyone who wants to use these: the code you paste into your signatures is what's in the "PseudoHTML, UBBCode, or BBCode" box.

    It saved my DH the trouble of coding one for me. I've been scouting other Disney boards looking for similar countdowns until I found that one yesterday.

    The guy that ran v50 is giving the code to his away. I sent the info to Lou to see about coding it into DWT and I took a copy to see about hosting it on my server. You just saved us a lot of trouble!

    Thanks!
