I need some of your help - let me explain

I have a website which is due to be offical this Friday (australian time)

and one of the webpage have a grand opening page which has the countdown as the code below

<SCRIPT type="text/javascript">




function setcountdown(theyear,themonth,theday,thehour,themin,thesec){
yr=theyear;mo=themonth;da=theday;hr=thehour;min=themin;sec=thesec
}

//////////CONFIGURE THE COUNTDOWN SCRIPT HERE//////////////////

//STEP 1: Configure the countdown-to date, in the format year, month, day, hour(0=midnight,23=11pm), minutes, seconds:
setcountdown(2009,11,27,20,30,00)

//STEP 2: Change the two text below to reflect the occasion, and message to display on that occasion, respectively
var occasion="offical opening"
var message_on_occasion="Website now offical"
//window.location="http://www.canberradeafclub.org.au"

//STEP 3: Configure the below 5 variables to set the width, height, background color, and text style of the countdown area
var countdownwidth='550px'
var countdownheight='35px'
var countdownbgcolor='white'
var opentags='<font face="Verdana" color="blue"><small>'
var closetags='</small></font>'

//////////DO NOT EDIT PAST THIS LINE//////////////////

var montharray=new Array("Jan","Feb","Mar","Apr","May","Jun","Jul","Aug","Sep","Oct","Nov","Dec")
var crosscount=''

function start_countdown(){
if (document.layers)
document.countdownnsmain.visibility="show"
else if (document.all||document.getElementById)
crosscount=document.getElementById&&!document.all?document.getElementById("countdownie") : countdownie
countdown()
}

if (document.all||document.getElementById)
document.write('<span id="countdownie" style="width:'+countdownwidth+'; background-color:'+countdownbgcolor+'"></span>')

window.onload=start_countdown


function countdown(){
var today=new Date()
var todayy=today.getYear()
if (todayy < 1000)
todayy+=1900
var todaym=today.getMonth()
var todayd=today.getDate()
var todayh=today.getHours()
var todaymin=today.getMinutes()
var todaysec=today.getSeconds()
var todaystring=montharray[todaym]+" "+todayd+", "+todayy+" "+todayh+":"+todaymin+":"+todaysec
futurestring=montharray[mo-1]+" "+da+", "+yr+" "+hr+":"+min+":"+sec
dd=Date.parse(futurestring)-Date.parse(todaystring)
dday=Math.floor(dd/(60*60*1000*24)*1)
dhour=Math.floor((dd%(60*60*1000*24))/(60*60*1000)*1)
dmin=Math.floor(((dd%(60*60*1000*24))%(60*60*1000))/(60*1000)*1)
dsec=Math.floor((((dd%(60*60*1000*24))%(60*60*1000))%(60*1000))/1000*1)
//if on day of occasion
if(dday<=0&&dhour<=0&&dmin<=0&&dsec<=1&&todayd==da){
if (document.layers){
document.countdownnsmain.document.countdownnssub.document.write(opentags+message_on_occasion+closetags)
document.countdownnsmain.document.countdownnssub.document.close()
}
else if (document.all||document.getElementById)
crosscount.innerHTML=opentags+message_on_occasion+closetags
return
}
//if passed day of occasion
else if (dday<=-1){
if (document.layers){
document.countdownnsmain.document.countdownnssub.document.write(opentags+"Occasion already passed! "+closetags)
document.countdownnsmain.document.countdownnssub.document.close()
}
else if (document.all||document.getElementById)
crosscount.innerHTML=opentags+"Occasion already passed! "+closetags
return
}
//else, if not yet
else{
if (document.layers){
document.countdownnsmain.document.countdownnssub.document.write(opentags+dday+ " days, "+dhour+" hours, "+dmin+" minutes, and "+dsec+" seconds left until "+occasion+closetags)
document.countdownnsmain.document.countdownnssub.document.close()
}
else if (document.all||document.getElementById)
crosscount.innerHTML=opentags+dday+ " days, "+dhour+" hours, "+dmin+" minutes, and "+dsec+" seconds left until "+occasion+closetags
}
setTimeout("countdown()",1000)
}
</script>

But the missing part is how can I get it automatically redirected to the offical URL after the countdown finishes?

Your immediate help would be appericated!

You can use this to redirect the user to your "official" page.

window.location = "<official page>";
