I thought it was just me, it had been a nightmare using the Android mobile app today!

I thought it was me.

It seems very slow today.

me too sad

ShadowFall Wed 09-Oct-13 14:43:44

Slow for me as well.

SpiritOfTheBuskersCat Wed 09-Oct-13 14:44:11

yup, guessing its from all the extra traffic from twitter. #penisbeaker will have directed a lot of people our way

Yep, slow here as well. DS home sick and Im stuck on the sofa with him, I need a fast MN smile

Ha! I was just running a scan to see if there was some monsteroony inside my computer!

It will be one of those bastarding "this script is......" doing my head in

Ragwort Wed 09-Oct-13 14:52:00

Me too - what's going on?

LadyBeagleEyes Wed 09-Oct-13 14:53:41

Yup, me too. It's taking ages to post a message and also to get on to the pages.

It's because of the Penis in a Beaker thread that's all over Twitter FB and the media! Extra hits.

Hi everyone,

Sorry for the slow site today - we're suffering over here at MNHQ too.

Tech are on the case, so hopefully the site will recover soon.

I can't even post or load pages

The words 'penis', 'downtime' and 'go slow' could doubtless become a witty thread in its own right

I wondered why on earth MN was getting mentions in social spheres of mine far removed from these shores. I didn't realise Penis Beaker had gone viral....

TEErickOrTEEreat Wed 09-Oct-13 15:06:15

It has indeed, Vivi.

Yeh, even I might give up just for this afternoon grin

There's no end to the trouble penises in beakers cause.

mummylin Wed 09-Oct-13 15:53:55

Just came on to post the same thing, glad it's not my iPad going wrong !!!

I think the penis dunking thread might have overwhelmed the hamsters that power the servers.

Methe Wed 09-Oct-13 16:17:38

It's been terrible for me for weeks sad every other reload promps a 'mumsnet is offline' type message.

garlicvampire Wed 09-Oct-13 16:57:20

I may have to do Real Life for a while instead shock [wibble]

FruOla Wed 09-Oct-13 17:47:42

Oh FFS, I tried to post about 10 minutes ago.

I was trying to say that, in addition to the the usual slowness, today is jeffing awful - I guess due to the penis dunking thread.

Whether this post actually makes it onto this thread, I have no idea.

I'm going now.

MNHQ, you will be responsible if I start ordering expensive stuff online - OKAY?

WorraLiberty Wed 09-Oct-13 18:20:03

It's been ridiculous for the last few hours.

DoItTooJulia Wed 09-Oct-13 18:20:17

Yeah. It's bloody annoying. I'm signing off for the night, it's so crap!
