OK, so it is totally obnoxiously HUGE, but I actually DID it! I figured out how to copy the code to get the countdown clock to appear in the sidebar!!! I'm so excited!! Of course, it is also advertizing FireFox with an ad the size of Manhattan - while I am using Internet Explorer to be online - but hey! I did it!!!! And it only took three hours!!
SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!!!
