This from the latest auto-reply from immi. I assume that this means that if your first application (for the 804) was in October 2013 you are about to get a queue date. If you already have a queue date in December 2008 you are about to be assessed for the visa itself. If the second assumption is correct then the 804 queue is still moving along nicely. Unfortunately the 103 queue still seems to be stuck.
