Hi captangel! Don't worry, it takes most people a little instruction and practice before they set their countdown clocks in motion. If you scroll down about 3/4 down the Chit-Chat page, you'll see a thread titled "How many days to go?" Have a look; it should give you all the information you need. Don't hesitate to post, though, if you're having problems; we're here to help.
Unfortunately, Suzi, just copying-and-pasting your countdown clock won't show the code itself because the page interprits the code, showing the clock. What you need to do is show the code as an image; that is, add extra [img[img][/img]] and [/img[img][/img]] tags around the [img[img][/img]] and [/img[img][/img]] tags. It's a little tricky.
