The only way to fix this Y2010 campaign would be to increase the EB quota and H1 quotas so all the new engineers can come in (& old ones hang around long enough) to put in 3 more digits into all the applications.
You forgot to include a call to all the testers too to ignore the date issue and not to raise any bugs. Otherwise some tester will catch it and your hopes are doomed.... lol.....
