Countdown Till Jack’s Disbarment

UPDATE: I no longer support this Firefox extension. I am still keeping this page around as a reminder of the fun I had.

Here is a nice timer to keep you in the loop on how long till Jack Thompson’s disbarment. Countdown to October 25, 2008 to the second.

This is version 0.7.5 until I make any more changes.

To install this extension, just download it to your desktop. Open Firefox’s Add-on window by going to Tools->Add-ons. Drag the xpi file onto this window and it will ask you if you want to install it. Install it and restart. Now you can Countdown with the rest of us.

Right click the title and select ‘Save Link As’ to download it. You will also need to unzip it after downloading.


If you have any bugs to report or problems with installing or using this add-on, please contact me through either my website’s contact form or by emailing me at zachary(at)ezknight(dot)net. For the quickest service, please include in your email the version of Firefox you are using (found in Help-> About FireFox), your operating system and steps you took to install the add-on. Thank you for supporting and using this add-on.

UPDATE 0.5 to 0.7: If you downloaded and installed version 0.5, you will need to install version 0.7 to take advantage of the time fix. To install the latest version, re-download the extension following the above instructions. Then uninstall the old one, restart Firefox and reinstall the new one. This version fixes the time to checking for Oct. 25 instead of Oct. 26 (how I missed that, I don’t know.)

UPDATE 0.7 to 0.7.5:This fixes an add-on window freezing bug. In versions 0.5 to 0.7 clicking the options or preferences button would pop up a window with the add-on in it. This could not be closed and you had to close Firefox entirely to get past this. I removed access to the options button until I have options to set.
