The server that hosts this will only support static content, not PHP.
However you can use Python or PHP (or whatever) to generate static
images and we can use Javascript to allow users to select which image
to show on their page.

Believe it or not, the load on the servers just serving static content
was quite heavy when we first started using the countdown banner.
