Yep, Wednesday 14 April to Saturday 17 April 2004.  I understand that's
far too long to wait between one sprint and the next, and wasn't meaning
to imply there should be no sprint until then, although in retrospect I see
my words may have sounded like that!-)

Ah, yes, of course -- it's an issue of statistics rather than maths.  Even if
we had 29.5 out of 30, it would be no use if there were funds enough for
just (say) 100 projects, and 101 other projects had a full 30/30!-)  And of
course we have no way to know about it until we're told...
