    Greg, come on, seriously? What "number crunching" was done here? The information on the VB released last week is just repeated here :-) Thanks anyway!

    Be nice LASW. You have to go back and forth between the previous month and the current month and it's a pain in the neck. I asked Zack to help me with it because it's time consuming. However, if you would like to volunteer to help me with this, I'd be happy to accept the help and give you credit.

    Greg, I think you should suggest to USCIS to add the previous month's PD's on every month's bulletin. It shouldn't be a problem as everyone is aware how as to how busy they are. LOL

    I suggest Excel :-)

    I guess people with priority dates nearer to these dates are more interested to know how far or how fast the dates are moving. For me, it about a 9 yr wait from now, so I only look at the year in the VB, and mostly ignore it. If something important were to happen, it will be all over the internet.

    Greg, didn't mean to disrespect the effort by you or Zack and I apologize if I came across that way. Just that I was looking for some more analysis of expected movements(if any could be made) beyond stating the obvious. Would be happy to contribute by summarizing the monthly VB if you need help. Thanks for all the information you post on the blog and for being a part of IV too!
