FYI I've started scanning for I-485 cases with a ND of 10/23/03 (my own I-140 / I-485 ND). It's going to take a while as I'm looking for all cases in 0401650000 through 0401655999 and I can only do about 250 cases per day (500 if I check from home also).

If anyone wants to help out just lemme know and I can send you a spreadsheet that is all set to check for a range of 250 cases (if you have dialup / some way of changing your IP so you can do more than 250 cases that would be great...). Running the macro only takes a couple minutes if you have broadband, maybe 15 minutes or so with dialup.

Without help, it will take me around at least a couple weeks to scan the full range (I might give up if/when I end up with enough cases for a good sample). Once I have the list, it will probably take 2-3 days to periodically recheck just those cases (assuming we end up with around 500 - 750 cases total for that day). The idea would be to forward the results to nemessis so he can include these in his great statistical summaries (if he's still willing

).

So far one range that I scanned (EAC0401651750 through EAC0401651934) had about 30% transferred cases, the other range (EAC0401651000 through EAC0401651388) had maybe 5%. No sign of FP yet (as expected), although 2 cases have FP received from around 01/15/04.
