I wrote small code on my site for counting how many days/hours/minutes left till next Ubuntu Linux release. Currently there is countdown timers for 11.04, 11.10, 12.04 LTS, 12.10. I hope you guys like it :-)

You can check it out here @ http://goio.net/info/ubuntu

OK, added more countdown timers and information. Also for current releases, added mirror download archive link. Now its separated in three sections, Major Releases, Minor Releases (for LTS versions) and Alpha/Beta Releases. Major release titles are now linked to official ubuntu wiki schedules.

I'm re-designing and re-coding the website on latest CodeIgniter version right now. So the countdown timers for Ubuntu and Holidays will be back up shortly. Also the other site futures will follow.

They should be javaScript or something so we don't have to force-refresh the page if our offline cache is disabled (thus, everything has offline cache.)

@Lucradia, thank you for the comment. I will add some sort of javascript to it later for it to be dynamic.

@DouglasAdams, Sorry mate no idea what you said.

@not found, if you read my replies you would see that I said that this page is currently down for re-programming.

Please stop posting "404" in this post guys, it can be considered as spam.

You know you can have that "404" in your signature aligned left :V

It kinda makes me think that whenever you reply to a link, you're saying it's File Not Found.
