Custom openSUSE countdown graphics
I meant to write this post a long time ago, when the countdown for openSUSE 11.1 was still active.
In this thread on the openSUSE mailing list, David C. Rankin came up with a blue version of the original 11.1 countdown graphics.
That inspired me, because the official green version did not match the colorshceme of my website. Also, the 3 sizes to choose from (small, original, large) did not fit my needs.
So, I wrote a small PHP script, which can dynamicly change the looks (color, gamma, alpha, language), and size of the countdown logo, using the official logo as a base image.
OpenSUSE 11.1 was released quite some time ago, and the counter has been updated to 11.2.
You can see examples of the two versions of the counter here:
Custom 11.1 Countdown Example
Custom 11.2 Countdown Example
You can read about how to use the custom countdown version on the openSUSE wiki:
Usage Instruction @ opensuse.org
You can link directly to the countdown graphics, or if your webhost has PHP support, you can get the source code here, and host it yourself:
