Could we take a head count for pending I140 who applied in Dec 04?
wanted to get an idea of how many people are left over like me whose I140 are never touched.

I am still hanging in there. When I tried to get one..they were not many entries..

Pre-poning FP appointment?

I just received second FP notice (actually biometrics or code 2) with appointment date for 07/12. I remember reading somewhere in the posts that some people tried going before the appointment date and got it done. Is that right? Any gotchas (apart from running the risk that the application center might be too busy at that arbitrary time)?
I don't know if this in any way speeds up the process but just wanted to try ;)

I went one week earlier for my first FP, and I got it done. But it really depend on the officer working there. At first, I was not allowed to enter the building, but just at that time, one men came out, and he said today is not very busy, so I can come in.
I'm not sure if it can speed up the process. My I140 is still pending. My second FP is on 6/17, but my daughter's is on 7/6, so I will try again to bring her with me, it means two weeks earlier for her.

Chicagopains, Congratulations! Good luck with your I-485 application.

Can you also post your timeline of I-140/I-485/EAD/AP application status so others could benefit from your case.
