Waiting for Boston

I am kinda pissed that a lot of my friends who put in their entry for the 2014 Boston Marathon on Friday are now coming up in a search for entrants, but my name is not.  After filling out all the entry info, the Boston people (B.A.A.) send you a nice email that says:

"Thank you for submitting an entry to the 118th B.A.A. Boston Marathon. It is important to note that your Reference ID does NOT constitute entry into the race, but confirms that your application for entry has been received by the B.A.A....  You will be notified of your acceptance by email and US Postal Service in October. Your notification of acceptance will be sent as soon as we verify your official results from your qualifying marathon. When you are accepted, your name will be posted on the Boston Marathon Entrants page."

So what is taking them so long to check the Philly Marathon database?

Registration still seems to be open, so I guess all will be well.
