For years, I’ve been using the Subscribe feature to receive e-mail updates when any one of my subscribed threads changes. Right now, I have 986 subscriptions, though obviously only a few get updated on a given day. Typically I’ll receive these e-mails somewhere around 1 AM Eastern. They might be spread out between 1:02 AM and 1:40 AM.
For the past 3-4 weeks, I’ve been receiving these e-mails over a much wider time span. Some will arrive in the middle of the afternoon. Today, December 9th, for this thread, I received the e-mail for December 7th updates at 0:57 AM and the e-mail for December 8th updates at 5:07 AM.
I don’t mind much, but I’m wondering if this might indicate that there’s a processing queue somewhere that’s getting saturated. Or a diskette that’s getting a little worn out.
