I've received *nothing*, so I was pretty miffed and sent them one of my classic e-mails (hey I'd already mailed them twice) and here's what I got:

Subject: Re: Payment?
Thank you for your email.
We have many checks to issue and are working as fast as we can to get them
out! We have already sent thousands of checks to our members and will
continue to do so until everyone is paid.
Your check is scheduled to be mailed in the next couple of weeks. Please
allow a couple of days for the postal service.
The checks for referrals will be paid shortly after the registration checks
have been processed. Each referral will be validated when they cash their
$20 registration checks.
Thanks for your patience and support. We are working as fast as we can.
