And Now, "Date-Watch"

As the "build-out" of the Sistina continues and – at least, to some degree – the blackout settles in, with the touchdown of Cardinal Jean-Baptiste Pham of Ho Chi Minh City (the first elector to arrive from Vietnam since 1978) and his seating in this afternoon's ConGen, all 115 PopeVotes are now present, and the timetable for the impending Conclave can finally be taken up.

Keeping in mind that all this is "a marathon, not a sprint," more as things emerge... in the meanwhile, given the need to briefly switch gears, just remember your Decision 2013 "cheat sheets" are already here.
