First, thank you. :) Second, I probably shouldn't have used the word 
steal since this is open-source we are talking about. The clock is 
fairly basic code, so a basic JavaScript and CSS guy could make it in an 
instant (I'm open :P). I completely understand what you meant with the 
names, and I didn't put my name in the code as I assumed that since the 
widget is hosted on my site that there wouldn't be an issue.

Thanks for the quick reply!

Looking at the code I can see that a site administrator modified my Ubuntu countdown clock I submitted for the 12.04 LTS contest, uploaded it to Dropbox, and embeded it on the Lubuntu site. They even kept the Analytics.
>> I love Lubuntu and LXDE and all, but it is just plain stealing if they don't put credit. I am kindly asking Lubuntu's site admins to either put credit to me at the bottom of the clock, or remove it. If the site developers wished for a Lubuntu-themed countdown clock, they could have contacted me with the email next to my entry. Reply if you need any more information of any kind.
