In general, for countdowns, every time discussions like this come up,
I wonder if :
    - Code authors have taken input of TZ from browser enquiry
      eg TZ="Europe/Berlin" in my case.
    - If enquiring humans also have considered TZ,
As shown by
As that browser enquiry will typically be addressed to a server
somewhere else on planet earth that may be timezones ahead or behind,
& at some times of day, will be a day ahead or behind, over the
date line, depending :-)  Try my

So unless an enquirer includes his/her date, time, & timezone of
enquiry, & unless enquirer also uses nslookup to trace target www
& look at source cgi-bin (which may be running on another host in
another zone anyway ) ... unless all of that I dont bother to look
further, so if you do a detailed analysis, I guess Fred
can then look at it, If there is an error :-)
