Countdown to Gen Con - 2 Days?

Does it bother anyone else that the countdown clock shows 2 days on Sunday morning?  I'm not sure how they are counting (which brings back memories of a school-wide argument about how to count how many days there were until Christmas), but what date do you think they're considering the start?  I mean, I could see Wednesday, but would expect Thursday, since it says 4-7th right above it.  Okay it doesn't really bother me, and I'm just super excited and can't seem to talk about anything except Gen Con (much to the chagrin of co-workers, family, and probably my boss, lol).

I thought it was nice of them to count down to when I arrive in Indy.

There are official events on Wednesday so I think that's what they're aiming for with the countdown.

I thought the countdown was the number of days until my wife and boss are ready for me to go... Which looks to be pretty accurate actually.

A short look into the source of the site reveals the start date as Wednesday, probably at midnight.  So as of this post, 2 days and some amount of hours less than 24, and then rounding those hours off to make 2 days.

I just assume it's exclusive counting, meaning it's not going to count the current day in the timer.
