Today, I wrote an applet counting down to - well, you can see what it's counting down to below and also at the bottom of my sidebar.
Well, actually, it's supposed to count down to the end of the day on which my last paper is scheduled, but whatever. Hey, here's a thought. You guys can put it up too, if you like. I'd really appreciate getting an email from the IT department of my school telling me to not host it on their server anymore.
That's not likely, of course, given that I do not have many readers nowadays, and the applet is really rather small (maybe I'll put more superfluous stuff into it later) but hey, a geek can dream, can't he? Anyway, simply paste the below code on your blog or site if you want to help my school expend some bandwidth.

Yes, this is what happens when geeks get bored. They write countdown applets. I've linked the source code
, in case anyone's interested, but it's really not a very clever program. The original idea was to make it go "woohoo! party time!" right after it finishes counting down, but then 1) I have like, 9 million more seconds as of this post to put that in and 2) I'd be too busy partying by then to actually see it change.
