Web-based countdown timer

Does anyone know of a website, where I can enter a date and time and it will show me a countdown?

For example, if I enter May 1st 2004, 6.30pm the countdown should display
X days, Y hours, Z minutes, W seconds to the event.

There are some timers available online, but they are of the type mm:ss or hh:mm only. I need a long duration timer.
