n days till YAPC::NA in Chicago!


I'm so excited to be going to YAPC this year!

I wrote a little script to count down the days till YAPC chicago. Being a Perl conference I wrote a perl script to write JavaScript :-) I know... I made it harder on myself than I had to, but how could I not do it in Perl?!?!

This javascript just has one function that returns the days till YAPC (or 8am on June 26), it's called days2yapc().

Place this in your (x)HTML:

<script src="http://silent11.com/cgi-bin/days2yapc.pl" type="text/javascript" language="javascript"></script>

After calling it you could do something like this:

document.write( Math.floor(days2yapc()) + ' days till YAPC in Chicago.');

or have some fun with images like this:

for(i=1; i<Math.floor(days2yapc()); i++) {
  document.write('<img src="http://silent11.com/includes/day.gif" />');	

The first example would output this:

The second example would output this::

Have fun.

I've found that Math.round() works better than Math.floor
