Hi J,

Can't really say if no news is good news. :)

We have noticed from member's posts that it is taking longer for people to hear anything after returning their ESA50.

Earlier in the year some people were hearing within a week.

I think that they may well be bogged down, as they are supposedly doing 11,000 IB to ESA migrations a week.

cheers
