Oh, something for y’all who like Christmas: My Christmas Countdown Utility. It’s a small little program for Windows-based PCs that (as you would expect from the title) counts down the days until Christmas. It also has a built-in reminder that you can set, for simple “alarm” functionality. You can even add a note to your alarm.
It runs in the system tray and consumes only a few KB of memory. Not much to look at, but hey, I threw it together in about a half an hour (most of the time spent looking for the cool icons it uses! Try clicking on them!).
If you’re feeling adventurous, try finding the secret features I added to it. Good luck!
UPDATE: This program is no longer available. (Hey, it was old and shoddy to begin with.) But don’t despair – a new version is available!
