    I've found a great little countdown flash file that I want to run on our TV during our NYE party tomorrow night. I can get it to fill the Safari/Firefox window but I can't see how to maximise it so that everything else is gone i.e. dock, menubar etc.

    Any ideas?

    What about zooming in on it ... using Ctrl+scroll?

    and you are not going to share that with us? :D

    Anyway, I agree on the zooming in suggestion...quick and easy, no extra installing.

    That'll do nicely, thank you. The only issue with it is that it doesn't automatically resize your flash file when you go into full screen but resizing the window first and then full screening it does seem to work. :D

    I did consider zooming in but then I'd have to have the mouse cursor stuck in the middle of the screen, not ideal. It would also get a bit blurry with the zoom which I'd rather avoid. The flash file I'm using is called Flash Analogue Countdown Clock and costs $10 from here. I had a good look around and no stand alone app or flash app came as close to what I wanted as this so it is well worth the $10 to me.

    Here's what I've got it set up to look like:
