    Not sure what is happening with my countdown timer,

    My countdown app on the phone reads 107 days, but the countdown ticker in my signature is reading 121 days. I've tried changing the date format, still doesn't give a correct calculation.

    There does appear to be some gremlins in the countdown timer. A few people have had problems with a few days but not by that many :unsure:

    Well the only oddity is the way it works out morning/afternoon which can account for a day difference depending on when you specify from and to.

    If it's days out then it will be either the from or to is set incorrectly
