Flash code in the page says: "openDate=20090506183000"

That's something ;)

yeah.
the javascript does something similar but utterly non-functional.
i have the suspect that they may be good on content creation but if they program as they made the javascript...
try to read it! it's completely senseless, as if they tried to do something and then weren't capable of doing so in time. they seem to be complete incompetent idiots!

i know the problem: they wanted to get the time of now (read with new Date() in javascript) and they tried to do it by reading the client's time. then they realised that the client might have a wrong time set. in fact, they should have used a script that gets the time from the server, which is a reliable source.
then they tried to set the countdown date (20090506) but they used a completely senseless script, so they failed in this, too. then they realised there are timezones and that the client might not be set to the correct one.... so, in the end, the countdown is completely wrong and restarts always from 30 days.
the CEO of the company might have said: publish it NOW! make it work and publish it NOW!!!

*giggle* this promises very bad things... AOC docet.
