Countdown Timer v1.97 Technical Preview 2

It’s been many moons since I released the last technical preview of Countdown Timer 2.0. Honestly, things were stalled for a bit because I was busy with school and trying to figure out how I wanted to do what I wanted to do with the program.

The semester is over and I got it all figured out. So welcome to Countdown Timer version 1.97, better known as version 2.0 technical preview 2.

The Javascript that handles the updating of the countdown has been completely rewritten. I ended up scrapping what I had and then taking the PHP code I was already using and converted it to Javascript. This is the “elegant solution” I mentioned I was looking for earlier.

In terms of stability, everything seems fine; I am currently using this Technical Preview on AFdN. There are a couple known bugs that deal with stripping non significant digits and I haven’t fully tested the upgrade process. Other then that, everything is complete. I’m hoping to have 2.0 shipped before the New Year.
