    Help with countdown timer

    Hello,

    I am wondering if someone can help me figure out a way to make the script below just countdown to midnight in my current timezone. Right now, I have to change the script at midnight manually, and that really sucks! Your answers are kindly appreciated in advance!

    //For example, if "baseunit" is set to "minutes", arguments[0] and arguments[1] become meaningless etc

    var displaystring="Launch time!"
    }
    return displaystring

    //2) Display countdown with a stylish LCD look, and display an alert on target date/time
    function formatresults2(){

    You could take advantage of a wheel already invented.
    Code:
    <script type="text/javascript">
    now = new Date();  
    var str = (now.getMonth()+1)+'/'+(now.getDate()+1)+'/'+now.getFullYear();
    
    TargetDate = str+' 12:00 AM';
    // TargetDate = "9/16/2011 12:00 AM";
    
    BackColor = "palegreen";
    ForeColor = "navy";
    CountActive = true;
    CountStepper = -1;
    LeadingZero = true;
    
    // DisplayFormat = "%%D%% Days, %%H%% Hours, %%M%% Minutes, %%S%% Seconds.";
    // DisplayFormat = "%%H%% Hours, %%M%% Minutes, %%S%% Seconds.";
    DisplayFormat = "%%H%%:%%M%%:%%S%%";
    
    FinishMessage = "It is finally here!";
    </script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://scripts.hashemian.com/js/countdown.js"></script>
