CountDown timer
what it is
This is a very quick and simple timer. It sits in your menu-bar and shows the days, hours and minutes remaining until a set date. Initially designed to count down to Steve's Keynote at the WWDC, it has now been extended to support other dates as well.

where to get it from
who wrote it
All code written myself, Michael Adams.

why I wrote it
Because I hate converting between time-zones and needed to do a little extra study for my Cosc exam, so I decided to dive head first into Cocoa+Java.

how to extend it
The code and Interface Builder files are all distributed on my site. Just load up the .pbproj file and start hacking. There are plenty of comments to go around!
