Bloglines issues

If you're one of the many folks who read SiliconBeat through Bloglines, you may have noticed that our content is sometimes many hours old by the time it shows up in your Bloglines reader. Apparently, Bloglines is struggling with growth issues. Spokeswoman Cathy Thompson tells us the service has outgrown its current set-up, "and that's slowing down the processing of new posts during peak hours.'' Thompson characterized it as a temporary problem, until Bloglines can move to a new co-location server facility run by its parent company, Ask Jeeves/IAC. Here's hoping the move comes sooner rather than later.

I guess either their architecture isn't scalable (and if it'd improve by being moved to another server setup, it must be) or AskJeeves isn't willing to throw $10K or so into adding some servers to the existing setup. That would strike me as odd. Wouldn't surprise me if that's a cover reason for something else.
