    I need a countdown for 3 hours and for it to repeat.

    I have a demo site I've built and I have set up a cron job to reset the database and file structure every 3 hours. I want to be able to let my viewers know when the demo site willl reset by giving them a countdown too.

    Can anyone provide the code required to get this done?

    thank you,
    Jerry

    Is this supposed to be in the Java forum, or is it supposed to be in the Javascript forum?
    PHP Code:
    header('HTTP/1.1 420 Enhance Your Calm'); 
    Been gone for a few months, and haven't programmed in that long of a time. Meh, I'll wing it ;)

    You just need to have whatever script is doing the reset to make a file, of whatever type you can use, that notes the time the reset occurred, and to say when the next one will occur. Then when a visitor comes to the site, the index page will reference that file so your visitors will know.
