Could you make it easier to find the times of the beginnings and ends of PRPNet challenges?

One way to do it is to use a web page similar to the section of the PrimeGrid home page that shows the beginnings and ends of PrimeGrid challenges.

If you prefer a simpler way, you could offer a web page that shows only the current UTC time and date, and the UTC time and date of the next beginning or end of a PRPNet challenge.

would you like to have a counter in the current challenge page

the page points every time to the most next (or previous) challenge; start and end is declared at line 3

That page contains half of the information needed. It would be adequate to add a line to that page showing the current time and date in UTC, or a link to another page showing it, and to add a sticky thread to the PRPNet forum mentioning where to find that page and with a title obvious to someone just starting out in PRPNet.

A counter to the next start or end would also work.

okey - I will do some tries, so dont worry if it is unavailable or shows up errors some times ...

EDIT:
any comments on the new version? feedback wanted dead or alive :D

EDIT2:
some notes on sticky threads... there is one on top for every announced challenge which will be made unsticky after the race; there in the first post are all informations (except the time remaining to the start). It is named equal every challenge: year - PRPNet - month - Challenge, so you can find it years after until the whole thread is deleted by admin;
to keep it organized this is the best proven practice
