Thank you - that explained allot, and that is just the kind of help i needed!
I get around php and MySQL so it wont be a problem collecting data from MySQL.
It is just one event at a time (the next one) and as soon as this is finished, check the next event.
This should be something like an info panel. I already made ticker box at the bottom ( that wasnt too complex - allot of pre-coded tickers on the web). but i wasn't able to find that cooldown that shows exact time from now to a variable.
