    how to create a countdown?

    stephan.k Level 1
      Dear list

      I am looking into ways to create a countdown until the launch of a website (days - hours - minutes - seconds )...

      I guess I could try looking at the user's clock but that one could not be on time...

      Another way I was thinking would be to get the initial time from the server and then count down with a setInterval from there...

      Anyone ever done that? Any insights? other ways of achieving this? Do's and don'ts?

      Thanks in advance

      Cheers
