I got a couple of requests for a version of the bond countdown timer that’d work with Blogger or any other non-self-hosted blogging system.
Here it is, with comments and all too. See, two years of teaching programming style haven’t gone down the drain. Much.
To use, copy and paste the entire section into anywhere you want the words "x days and $y left to go" to show up, making sure to customise the variables for your own situation — bond value and the start and end dates. If there’s an error, let me know by email or on the comments.
