I do not care if this was coded with 1000 or 10 lines, I do not code, neither wish to - it looks great, it works great, and it is FREE. There are hundreds of these countdown timers out there, but none as reliable and customizable as this one as I had a few locking up my system, probably because they were written with like 30 lines. And as far as I am aware it does not rely on ticks but rather real clock time. Thanks for this simple, but effective product.

Fully customizable and does not get in the way when you adjust the screen in MT4. I love it.
