Ubuntu 9.10 Countdown Banners

with 7 comments

As I’m sure you all know by now, Ubuntu (and friends) 9.10 Beta images were released yesterday. What you might not know is that the countdown banners have also been released. You can grab them here.

Option 1 – “Stars” by Thorsten Wilms (thorwil)

<script type=”text/javascript” src=”http://www.ubuntu.com/files/countdown/display.js”></script&gt;

Option 2 – “The spotlight” by Andrew Higginson

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.ubuntu.com/files/countdown/display2.js"></script>

Option 3: Simple image (for those who can’t use javascript)

<a href="http://www.ubuntu.com/"><img src="http://www.ubuntu.com/files/countdown/static.png" width="180" height="150" alt="Ubuntu: For Desktops, Servers, Netbooks and in the cloud" border="0" /></a>

P.S. Dear lazy web. How does one go about properly posting code on a free wordpress.com blog where you can’t install any plugins?

  4. http://xxx.com/xxx.png can be a PHP file… thus making the use of Javascript unnecessary!

  5. hello,
    i would like to put the 9.10 countdown timer banner on my wp.com blog, but showing the “XX days to go!” (with days number) instead of simple static image showing “coming soon”,
    do you know any code for that image (with days number)?
    thanks a lot :D

  6. is it possible to use GD PHP library next time, so it will be usefull in more places? (and will not need JS supporting)

  7. Someone rolled up a PHP version of the countdown for 9.04 but as of today I haven’t found anyone who has done us the favor for 9.10. I’m on WP.com as well and I’d love to be able to run a dynamic countdown on my blog.

    Hopefully TPTB will realize how important a PHP version of the countdown is to some of us when they start working on the 10.04 countdown. Only being able to run a proper countdown every other release really sucks.
