Incorrect days-until-public count for private beta's login page

A small nitpick, but the number of days remaining when you try to visit a site that's in private beta is not the same as the number of remaining when you visit its proposal on Area 51.

An off-by-one error, perhaps?

on area 51

on the site in private beta

Seems alright to me.

It is in private beta for 1 more day.
The day after it will be in public beta. (Add one day).

That makes two days for Public beta to begin.

You may have a point there, although according to the tooltip you get when you hover the number of days on Area 51, it says that the public beta opens Aug 30 at 19:00 UTC. Since we're already on Aug 29 UTC, that's tomorrow, or in 1 day. – hammar Aug 29 '11 at 2:53
In either case, the tooltip, while subtle, answered my question of when it actually starts. Perhaps there should be a tooltip on the counter on the site itself as well? – hammar Aug 29 '11 at 2:59
@hammar yes, that should make things clearer. – phwd Aug 29 '11 at 3:25
