I always wondered about that, too. What other justification could there be that it takes that long to score a contest other than that the software runs on an Intel 4004 processor and it needs that extra time? It is rather silly in this day and age that it takes this long to score a contest, but you get penalized when you're a day late. I got my certificate I think just two weeks ago. 

I'm all in favor of immediate online scoring. It's rather pointless to work your behind off in a contest only to get the results by the time you almost forgot that you worked the contest and pretty much don't care about the results anymore, or worse, you became a SK in the meantime.
