Right now all I can think of is a skin that's annoyingly big and uses IF-functions...

Code: Select all

[MeasureDate1]
Measure=Time
Format=%d

[MeterDay1]
Meter=String
MeasureName=MeasureDate1
X
Y
-
-
-
IfEqualValue=12
IfEqualAction=!Execute [!RainmeterShowMeter Meter2DaysLeft]

[Meter2Daysleft]
Meter=String
X
Y
-
-
-
Text="2 days left"
As you can see, it's annoying and really frustrating to use for multiple purposes...
What about using a skin that already has a nice little countdown and change it a "tad"?
I don't think, therefore I'm not.
