How do I modify this script so I can change the time also?

How can I modify this countdown script to be able to set the time, not just the date?

I want to set the countdown timer to a date (not Christmas) this year. (I already noticed that when I generate the script, it sets to 2007 instead of 2008, so I have to manually fix it.) I'd like to be able to set the time to countdown to 1900 hours (7pm) - and that's CST if this is not dependent on the user's computer clock. (How do I tell if it's dependent on the user's clock?)

I know there are plenty of other copy-paste countdown timers out there, but I really prefer the appearance of this one over the others I've found.

The countdown timer feeds some parameters to a shockwave file hosted on the site. Unless that shockwave file has some hooks to accept time input, it's not going to work.

Best answer: The look of that would be really easy to replicate in javascript, modifying one of the many countdown scripts out there. Do you know javascript by any chance? If not I could probably mock up something for you.

Never noticed another hoosier on here =]
