Hello.

We just wanted to let you all know that we're having trouble with one of our systems this morning, and that means there may well be some delay in responding to your Reports.

We're so sorry. We're doing all we can to sort things as quickly as possible.

<kicks everything, twice>

LadyBeagle Wed 21-Nov-12 12:23:05

You shouldn't have told us that Helen.
<Predicts a huge increase in dodgy threads>
Mitmoo to you grin.

BRANdishingMistletoe Wed 21-Nov-12 12:26:10

So does this mean we can say very naughty things knowing that there will be plenty of time for everyone to see them? wink

OliviaMumsnet is a total cow because her car is very nearly as cute as mine. It's totally her fault that I occasionally wonder if I should have bought a yellow one like hers instead of a cream one. I'll be over any day now to steal her car sort her out and she'll be sorry. (There you go, personal attack, implication that I know where she lives and a direct thread of violence. grin)

GrimAndHumourless Wed 21-Nov-12 12:29:44

Oh NOES

Lolo at Mitmoo to you and at BRAN's post too

SoupDragon Wed 21-Nov-12 12:30:35

Has DarrenTech forgotten to feed the hamsters powering the systems again?

ThePathanKhansWitch Wed 21-Nov-12 12:32:32

Have you tied poor tech up again?

No, we still have super-tip-top-functioning access to the delete button...

mignonette Wed 21-Nov-12 13:28:33

Which appears not to be working too.....wink

It's a mutiny over having to grow moustaches for Movember.

Patrickmumsnet is leading a revolt after the comments about his brave attempts to grow more than a couple of hairs.

You could be right - hadn't thought of that. <offers Patrick manly tankard of gin>

mignonette Wed 21-Nov-12 14:23:54

Patricksmum is lucky. I feel like I am being assaulted by an over enthusiastic shoe brush whenever DH looms over me for a kiss. Roll on December.

HoneyDragon Wed 21-Nov-12 14:32:57

So how long do you anticipate this delay to be?

<<starts rallying troops>>

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 21-Nov-12 14:35:43

Rallying troops to do what exactly? <wary>

MaryZezItsOnlyJustNovember Wed 21-Nov-12 14:37:43

<reports for duty>

HecatePropylaea Wed 21-Nov-12 14:37:54

We finally broke MN.

It was inevitable.

SaggyOldClothCatPuss Wed 21-Nov-12 14:41:54

<<Takes Honey's shilling>>

BrainSurgeon Wed 21-Nov-12 14:42:59

Reporting for duty too - whazzup?

If you want some field action you could come hold down DH while I shave off his Movember.....Before the darned thing exfoliates my face down to the skullbone

mignonette Wed 21-Nov-12 14:45:51

And Honey too. didn't see you hiding 'up' there...

FlyOverTheMistletoe Wed 21-Nov-12 14:46:10

I thought everyone at MNHQ already had a moustash grin

SaggyOldClothCatPuss Wed 21-Nov-12 14:50:00

Mignonette can I suggest that you get DH to direct his Movember offering somewhere south of your face? wink I can heartily recommend this course of action!

mignonette Wed 21-Nov-12 14:52:28

Saggy

He's been banned from there until it has gone, gone, gone....!

SaggyOldClothCatPuss Wed 21-Nov-12 14:53:16

Well dont say that I didnt recommend it! grin

BrainSurgeon Wed 21-Nov-12 14:55:01

<confused by where this is going>

mignonette Wed 21-Nov-12 14:56:31

His bristles stick straight out and are acutely painful on my skin shock. The neighbours would call the police at my howls of pain...It would not be a case of a light little tickle. Maybe I should put some conditioner on it?

HoneyDragon Wed 21-Nov-12 14:58:01

Why, Helen to patrol the boards and maintain PARD and harmony throughout in HQ's hour of need of course.

Why? Did you think I was gathering forces for another crazed take over, leading to the ultimate collapse of the site and alround naughtiness? If so shame on you!

SaggyOldClothCatPuss Wed 21-Nov-12 14:58:54

grin Brain! Do you need me to explain?wink

SaggyOldClothCatPuss Wed 21-Nov-12 14:59:43

Honey, Oh. <<deflated>>

HoneyDragon Wed 21-Nov-12 15:00:34

Saggy no monarch sponsored shillings I'm afraid. It'll have to be a waitrose token.

SaggyOldClothCatPuss Wed 21-Nov-12 15:03:25

Make it a clubcard voucher and Im still in!

ChippingInLovesAutumn Wed 21-Nov-12 15:26:08

HelenMumsnet - Rookie mistake my friend, rookie mistake!

MaryZezItsOnlyJustNovember Wed 21-Nov-12 15:29:58

Or double bluff, Chipping, to weed out the trouble makers <sideways stare at Honey>

what a day for the system to go bananas!

Will you get overtime at MNHQ to clear up the backlog?

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 21-Nov-12 16:03:36

OK, so the system's properly back up now but we appear to have mislaid a lot of this morning's Reports <silent scream>

We will get back to you. As soon as we've finished tearing our hair out...

OlaRapaceFru Wed 21-Nov-12 16:08:11

You shouldn't have kicked the equipment Helen; surely you know that's V painful and then it takes the equipment twice as long to start working again grin

LadyBeagle Wed 21-Nov-12 16:10:37

Oh bugger, I was looking forward to policing the boards with little ahems everywhere.
<Takes of police helmet and badge>.

BrainSurgeon Wed 21-Nov-12 16:21:13

No thanks Saggy <scared> I think I get it!

HoneyDragon Wed 21-Nov-12 16:48:08

Maryz hmm
