Sorry to hear about the delay in getting your CD activated at  
MediaGuide, Jae -- at first I thought it probably fell into the period  
Frank Johnson referred to when responding to Arturo's query about  
spins of certain CDs (including my current project) not getting  
registered...that it was sitting around and not processed is unusual I  
would think...for example Sinnett Hearings would never have debuted as  
#1 had it not been activated in a timely manner.
