    Throwing milk at the bitches!
    Have you tried using that BBC code for it?
    And if not, try using a image that updates from a site in a countdown.

    http://countdownimages.org/ should work, I would think.

    Edit - Well, I can't get that one to work...

    Tickerfactory.com might work, but it doesn't seem to have as many options. Play around with them and see what you can do!

    We're not supposed to use dynamics images anymore, and there's no way to import client-side scripting into a post, so you'll have to just post a link to a countdown.

    Found it by searching for 'countdown clock for signatures' in Google.

    Only seems to update each time you refresh though.....

    Updating without refreshing would involve either a streaming GIF (which, while technically possible, is very rarely used for a variety of reasons which mostly involve bandwidth for both ends), or client-side code.

    THANK YOU! Although being non-live is a minor inconvenience.
