The rumor boards have been pretty quiet this week. With the last referrals coming out on July 27, it's really too soon to be hearing anything reliable. This last batch covered LIDs June 29 through July13, 2005 - 15 days worth of LIDs. This is two more days than the previous month, which was four more than May, which was two more than April, which was two more than in March. Albeit slowly, the process does seem to be picking up speed.
Since this last batch came out a little later in the month than usual, I'm hoping that this month's referrals will come out closer to the 21st or 22nd of the month. If the referrals don't come out until Sept 1st or 2nd, then there will be essentially no August referrals this year.
