View Full Version : New Countdown website!

01-24-2005, 06:20 AM
Hey guys, im really quite excited, now most of you will probably laugh when you see it but i made a new website! It took me about 3 hours altogether (phew http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif) and was a stress at times, i made it because i wanted a countdown to the game, i asked here but no one seemed to react. So i decided do it yourself Dominico! (even though i knew nothing about making one...)

Well here is the link, i look forward to your comments about it... Be gentle... But I dont mind criticism (though i dont think i can do much more with it till i learn!!)

P.S If someone could sticky this it would be cool, so people can see a countdown to the game when they visit the site. Put it on your favourites guys so you can visit and get really annoyed at how many days are left lolz http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

pps im trying to make a timer which counts down as you look at the site, but this is a little beyond me at the moment, should have it done soon though as i nearly got it figured!!

Uhhh it may help if i linked to the site...

Register the address (and a bunch of key-words, i.e. "Silent Hunter 3", "release") with a search engine or ten.

...and thanks, for making the wait even more intolerable. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

How do you do that antrodemus? Is it free, where can i read up how to do this?

May I also point out that the Timer is counting down to the release of "Silent Hunter II". http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

I think waiting for Silent Hunter III would be way more fun. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Try here for starters :


Most search engines, if you go to their home page, will have a "register your site" option.

For ICT, I've got to make a spreadsheet look good and function as a mark-book for teachers. I've only just started it and I'm already wasting time making it pretty (pics, WordArt etc, which will NOT add marks to it http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif) It's tough, or perhaps thats because we haven't really been taught anything yet (or maybe I wasn't listening http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

Too true, and it'll probably cost you marks, and may even earn you a dressing-down by your teacher/lecturer.

I once handed in a Pascal program assignment, thinking "She'll be impressed by my flashy coloured text display stuff" - I couldn't have been more wrong. She went ape at me, and pointed out that my time should have been spent on optimising the code... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

She was absolutely right - no point in making it look good if it doesn't work properly. Pity more software houses couldn't stick to that agenda. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Here's a site with the countdown in real time. Its in German so I ain't got a clue what anything says on the site. At least I think its German.

According to your site it is still something like 385 days until the release of SHIII.

You might want to...optimize the code a bit... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I think it gets the date info from the computer which logs on, so maybe its a fault at your end!! Looks right to me http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif
