Hi, I'm "just a user" out here. I haven't done this in a long time,
but I remember mine being very slow to produce output when generating
my own. Is it possible the gap in time is because your computer's
taking that long to digest the command and then spit out an output?

Or is the possible issue that this command used to respond instantly
for you and now there appears to be that gap in time before the
command completes?

That's as much as I can help with it. I'm just thinking that your
answer might help more knowledgeable people help you.
