Just realised, six days time it's Wednesday, so the countdown clock is wrong AGAIN.
So, here's this:

You don't count the day you're counting towards though?

Three days until Sunday
Four days until Monday
Five days until Tuesday
Six days until Wednesday
SEVEN days until BOA-day.

I was also wondering what the hell was going to be happening at the site on Wednesday as it's 7 days, surely?

If it had hours & minutes on it, and was counting down in full, then "6 days, X hours, etc" would make sense. But the truncation makes the countdown worthless. Besides which, if that where the case, it's not counting down to the opening time, but the date.

Yeah, you're right. Realised not long after I posted that you were right. Ah well.

Nope. It's zero because there are less than 24 hours to Thursday. 13 or so by my reckoning.
