  1. This is updated in March 2007, and may not be the latest.

  2. Why the schedule calendar shows Day 23 as 23rd instead of just 23 like other numbers?

  3. @Rishi, you are so careful to read the article. The reasons is, very simple. To save some space, I removed all the -nd, or -st, -th from the dates, but ignored 23rd. Since I have space now, I didn’t correct this small mistake. There is no special meaning for this.

  4. Hi Jian Shuo, Thank you for the clarification.

  5. Good job on posting the schedule to all.

    Note to those living in China and needing to know if they can get Olympic tickets for 2008:

  6. Why are there no times/channels? There is no point of printing this schedule if there are no times or channels.
