I hope this is the right place - I couldn't find a cyber burner forum...

if any o' youse girlz and guyz use the iGoogle homepage - you can now ad a "countdown to the burn" gadget. I just added it today - so far it's not showing up in search results

BUT

if you click on "Add stuff »" on your home page
and on the next page - next to the "Search Homepage Content" there's a link called "Add by URL"

if you click that and enter dismalnv.com/externals/burn_widget5.xml

you will have your very own countdown gadget on your homepage.

if you get an error - try again in a few seconds - google's a little quirky on this thing or you can try:

dismalnv.com/externals/burn_widget4.xml

or

dismalnv.com/externals/burn_widget6.xml

one of those should work at any given time.

It's called BM timer (oh let the snark commence! :lol: ), I loaded it last year, it was my first "gift", then I met the guy that developed it when I was a greeter at the airport. It doesn't count down to the second, but it does count down the days.

Looks pretty neat.
