People have complained about the speed of gpodder.net throughout the day. Sometimes, responses take a few seconds to go through. We've now decided to order a second virtual server to go with the main server, in order to balance the load a bit and split the database for better performance. The new server is already taking care of taking off some load from the main server. You should see better response times and better availability now. Please let us know if you are still experiencing issues.
