Fedora 11 countdown counter
I just got a little bored and I decided to make myself a little bit more useful by creating a Fedora 11 countdown counter. Just for the heck of it. =)
It’s a small script that counts towards the (current) official release date of Fedora 11, 05-29-2009. It’s written in PHP and uses a customized version of Mo’s Beta wallpaper and was inspired on Paolo Leoni’s website banner.
You can download the package (~77kb in 3 files: 1 png file – 1 PHP script and 1 font file) here: http://berkenpies.nl/leonidas/countdown.tar.gz
If you are interested in using the banner than please consider downloading the package and putting it up somewhere yourself to save my bandwidth. 😉 The only requirements I can think of are PHP and GD.
And if you are not able to have it hosted somewhere for whatever reason, feel free to link to the version above.
PS. I’m not a graphics artist so it doesn’t have spiffy rounded corners and the image might not be perfectly cut out and scaled down, but it’ll do for me. Feel free to send me any changes and/or variants of the background. I’d be happy to whip up different counters.
PPS. If you want to display the script as an actual image you might want to add a .htaccess file to the directory you’ve put the scripts in containing:
RewriteRule ^countdown.png$ countdown.php [L]
