Registration needed for such a primitive plugin?
Spam yourself!

Logo on free version ๐Ÿ™

This plugin looks really good, and while it’s more customisable than most others out there, it’s still not as customisable as I would like.

Forcing users to display the logo on the free version is a little uncool, especially since the logo is huge and makes the otherwise beautiful countdown timer look cheap and ugly.
