What Is Your Delay?

Can you hear me now?

I have seen 3-hour delays and yesterday more than a day's delay between blog post and the post's appearance on In the recent case, it seemed that the post never appeared on's first page because it posted in an already-buried position.

What affects the delay and what delays do you encounter?

Update 7/6/07: This post did not appear on until about 6 hours later and was buried on page 3 (51-75) and apparently never saw the first page.

How can we fix this?

Update 7/6/07: quickly replied (thank you) that Feedburner was slow to record my content so I sent an Atom URL to and a subsequent post appeared on's first page an hour later.

The post appeared at about 4th place on the first page, inserted below posts that had already been there, so somehow others are getting a quicker turn-around time.
