bahcount Is a utility which counts down the seconds left until
noon, January 20, 2009.
That being the expected date Bush will cease being president of the USA.
Of course he'll be a lame duck before that already. It uses SDL and SDL_image (Simple Direct media Layer).
The program can show the countdown in two ways, either in a nice font in a small window, or in the title bar of a minimal sized window. Besides that there are options to print the amount of seconds left. Option -h will give you a full list of options.

I also created a web based counter. See below for the source.
