I bet they'd like one.

My bum goes all clenchy when I have to wait for things to load

I can run to a fiver.

<Clouds confused>

Clearly needs more grunt though. Cloud is good for that.

(I work for a hosting provider)

Put me down for a fiver

Put me down for £5, I need my MN fix in the evening and DH was really annoyed that I couldn't post his 'add a word, ruin a film' suggestions. They were rude ones too. sad

I have been wondering what servers it all runs on and how they're configured and then I wondered how many DDOS attacks and so on they get, and how that compares with my own employers...

I guess I'm not entirely unsuited to my sys admin job.

(Everything that's in the Cloud - there are still loads of servers and storage behind it all somewhere.)

Oh, I just realised, the p.e.n.i.s. b.e.a.k.e.r thread went viral! Lol! Poor woman though. sad

<wonders whether "penis beaker" will become the new slang for any server crash>

Ummm... what happened? I kind of buggered off at 8 to do gaming stuff.

It had been pretty bloody awful yesterday though.

I use AdBlock Plus so don't see any of their adverts... am I responsible for Mumsnet being too poor to afford a new server?

FortyDoorsToNowhere Thu 10-Oct-13 23:37:01

I will donate £2

That thread has popped up today so many times on my FB newsfeed that I wanted to post telling all non-MNer to go away and stop crashing MY site! Even DF sent me a link to it, FFS.

I'd buy a mumsnet mug or lemon drizzle cake recipe book wink

Just as I clicked on this thread earlier, the site went down. Spooky, I tell you.

VanDerGaagTransporten Thu 10-Oct-13 22:51:40

Count me in. It's getting beyond a joke now.

AnotherWorld Thu 10-Oct-13 22:41:41

Surely it's all in "the Cloud" now?

They can sell beakers and get a whole farm.

BlackeyedSusan Thu 10-Oct-13 22:34:25

I hve no money this month. clicking on adverts is depressing. unfotunatley it is even more depressing to have to wait 5 minutes for every soddingpage to load.

Monty27 Thu 10-Oct-13 22:30:18

Oh, a slight improvement

Monty27 Thu 10-Oct-13 22:29:46

Yep, I can't post, so I'm probably wasting my time writing this... let's see

kim, darkling, you and I are simpatico again - I'm in Site Stuff suggesting lotsa advert clicking.

Although I have benn traumatised by TEsco Kitchens. WTAF?

HenriettaPye Thu 10-Oct-13 22:22:21

Bowlersarm Thu 10-Oct-13 22:21:50
