What does the MusicBrainz Delay mean in the bottom left hand corner when songkong is processing songs? Mine currently is showing 04:33:37

That means delay enforced by the MusicBrainz rate limiter, i.e SongKong is only allowed to send one query per second to the MusicBrainz server so if the last query was sent at 10:00:00:000 (hh:mm:ss:mmm) and the time is now 10:00:500 it has to wait another 500 milliseconds before it can send the query to MusicBrainz so 500 milliseconds (1/2 a second) is added to the MusicBrainz delay.

I assume you have switched back to the real MusicBrainz server, because if using your local MusicBrainz server the rate limiting is not enforced and therefore there is no MusicBrainz delay and matches are quicker.
