Bloglines Lag: Two hours and 2 minutes..

Hardy a median number, but it appears that bloglines is lagging about 2 hours behind posts. This is too bad, but honestly, it still a remarkably good service, so I'm more than willing to deal with its growing pains. Success can put quite a strain on a data center.

The 2 hours and 2 minutes is the amount of time it took for the last post to appear on bloglines. Like I said, no biggie, but an interesting thing, nonetheless.

I agree it is a good service, I just need to make time to post on my own blog.
I read yours everyday so keep posting

Hasn't it always been at least an hour, though? I guess I've never had any sort of immediacy expectation with BL :). Though I must admit I do miss the drag'n'drop goodness of the Windows rss reader I used to use (NewzCrawler) before I decided that being able to slack, er, research via RSS feeds at work was a worthy tradeoff :D

You know, now that you mention it, I haven't tracked it before, it just seemed longer, you know? But yes, I'm not really expecting immediacy :-)

When I posted on mine there has been a lag in it appearing, however when I posted my comment it showed up right away
