To me at home. Don't know about the site.

You see, every mail I get from the rockbox list to my home is delayed -
about 25 minutes on average. Also, probably because the delay varies, if
someone posts an answer really quick and it isn't delayed so much it gets
to me ahead of the question. Öhhh - you get what I mean?

For example the headers from your latest message:

I would understand a slight delay because it takes some time to blast off
messages to 400 list members, but 25 minutes? (My mail server is always
up and has no problems receiving mail from anywhere else.)

This delay might be the reason why occasionally so many people on this
list reply to the same question - that we don't see that someone else
already has replied - but that is just a guess. Maybe they just do it it
to annoy the crap out of everyone else. :^)
