I'm having a few issues with my internet tonight, but MN seems particularly bad.

Or is it just my fucking annoying piece of shit Internet?

dazr mumsnet has been very, very slow for me too for several weeks since getting BT Infinity. Pages take minutes to load and nothing I've done inmpoves it

Fingers crossed I (well actually DH) might have cracked it (for me). DH was rambling about domain names and we found this webpage

http://www.isitdownrightnow.com/mumsnet.com.html

it gave lots of information/advice and we (my DH!) followed the one to clear the local DNS cache

He went into START then RUN
then he typed cmd (to get command prompt screen)
Then he typed in:
ipconfig /flushdns (and then he hit enter - don't forget space between g and /)
It then displayed a message to say it had successfully flushed the cache
and BINGO - mumsnet is zipping through the pages again... long may it last!

Well your DH is very clever. Give him a UnMN hug from me please.

Now the fast flowing bickering may commence...

It's awful tonight, i might have to go and do some actual stuff.

MissAnnersley Sun 20-Jan-13 20:57:43

Really slow again. A total pain.

HokeyCokeyPigInAPokey Sun 20-Jan-13 21:00:13

duende Sun 20-Jan-13 21:01:36

Really slow, and often is.

HQ please give tech a poke and get it sorted, dh has had an early night and i am bored!!

Every bloody night this week Mn has been slow for me. It was early tonight and I am not impressed.

I may have to do RL things like talk to DH when I want to browse S&B and AIBU.

Sorry to moan, but what on earth is actually wrong with it?

Lilyloo Sun 20-Jan-13 21:31:17

DoItToJulia Sun 20-Jan-13 21:35:24

usualsuspect Sun 20-Jan-13 22:14:14

Please can you mend MN <begs>

HokeyCokeyPigInAPokey Mon 21-Jan-13 08:25:49

Why is it fine in the morning, when people want me to do stuff and talk to them?!

When every one is in bed and i'm bored it's slower than slow thing from slowville.

S'up with the evenings, come on tech?!

Apologies, folks. We are on the case.

And re the mornings/evenings thing: evenings (and lunchtimes) are our busiest periods, so it's logical that if things are going to slow down at all, they're going to slow down most obviously when the most people are on Mumsnet.

I know that the Tech team are working on improvements, though, so hopefully, the slowness problem should be sorted very soon.

SweetSeraphim Mon 21-Jan-13 10:40:56

It's still awful this morning.

DoItToJulia Mon 21-Jan-13 10:44:31

Still slow. Is it because. We are all on a snow day, bored and clogging it up?

HokeyCokeyPigInAPokey Mon 21-Jan-13 12:44:34

It's even worse today!!!

I think maybe the 2013 gin budget needs to be moved to the 2013 new server budget wink
