I've noticed that trying to access the site between 8.30 and 10p.m lately is becoming virtually impossible. It's especially bad tonight and I keep giving up and coming back to it later, only to find it's still taking ages to load a page or the connection times out. Anyone else having problems?

shrimponastick Tue 05-Mar-13 12:12:04

Me too.

I gave it up as a bad job last night.

mummylin Tue 05-Mar-13 12:20:50

yes was very slow here too,so I also gave up

LineRunner Tue 05-Mar-13 15:26:51

Yes, it became unusable by about 9pm, really.

ShowOfHands Tue 05-Mar-13 20:30:58

Yup, yesterday and today. Sloooooooooooooooooow. Taking minutes at a time and giving up.

tonight cdmn.com seems to be a particular hanging point. It is really really bad isnt it!

AnyFucker Tue 05-Mar-13 20:32:10

Yep, last night was terrible...tonight is going the same way

HeathRobinson Tue 05-Mar-13 20:50:05

Yep, very slow for me too.

LineRunner Tue 05-Mar-13 20:52:46

Yeah, here we go, really really slow again.

JulieMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 05-Mar-13 20:55:56

Sorry folks. We'll let tech know as soon as we can.

LadyBeagleEyes Tue 05-Mar-13 21:14:32

Yes me too, last night and again tonight.
It's these bloody spammers isn't it?

AnyFucker Tue 05-Mar-13 21:19:14

It is taking several verrrrryyy slooowwww attempts to load anything at all

BabyRoger Tue 05-Mar-13 21:20:46

Yes here too, annoying.

mummylin Tue 05-Mar-13 21:21:20

slow here too

almostanotherday Tue 05-Mar-13 21:22:13

I keep getting kicked off hmm

WorraLiberty Tue 05-Mar-13 21:22:48

Yep, really bad for me tonight too.

Reggiee Tue 05-Mar-13 21:23:12

V annoying. Tis so slow I have to watch dh continually channel hop between football and cricket.

timidviper Tue 05-Mar-13 21:26:33

I thought it was just me!

IamtheZombie Tue 05-Mar-13 21:28:56

As OYBBK said, Zombie has noticed that when this happens, it's almost always cdnmn.com that seems to be the sticking point. Not just tonight, but when this has happened previously as well.

HeavenlyAmy Tue 05-Mar-13 21:33:28

Same for me. Grrr

Foggles Tue 05-Mar-13 21:34:40

Last night and tonight have been terrible.

I keep getting error message saying cannot connect to Mumsnet and redirecting.....

IwishIwasmoreorganised Tue 05-Mar-13 21:44:57

Up to 2 mins to load a page, and responses not posting.

It's driving me mad!

NicholasTeakozy Tue 05-Mar-13 21:49:15

It is really slow tonight. I thought it might be my steam powered pc as Facebook has been hanging badly and causing JavaScript to stop (probably a RAM deficiency), but I shut down Firefox and ran CCleaner and it's still slow. Waiting for cdnmn.com is the message I get.

If you're getting a redirect check for the Blackhole exploit highlighted by Sophos.

Maryz Tue 05-Mar-13 21:53:25

I thought it was the ipad, so I switched to the computer. I've turned it off and on a couple of times, and now I'm giving up (thankfully the football is over).

EndoplasmicReticulum Tue 05-Mar-13 21:54:13

Really bad this evening. I am about to give up and go and talk to my husband instead.

badinage Tue 05-Mar-13 22:10:45

Third attempt from me tonight and only just managed to get on to the site. Throughout the evening it's been terrible again. As it's time orientated towards the presumably peak traffic period of 8-10p.m, that suggests a server problem. Do they need upgrading?

Also it keeps booting me out when i try to log in. It took 7 or 8 attempts. Very annoying and makes the ironing pile mountain look less frustrating

moondog Tue 05-Mar-13 22:26:54

Yes, it's terrible!

Maryz Tue 05-Mar-13 22:29:20

We wouldn't have any of these problems if all the other posters would just bugger off shock.

It's a disgrace, all these extra people tying to use my the site in the evenings.

almostanotherday Tue 05-Mar-13 22:36:47

Sorry Maryz hmm

WorraLiberty Tue 05-Mar-13 22:51:12

It's speeding up for me now but I suspect that's because so many people have logged off and given up sad

magimedi Tue 05-Mar-13 22:51:29

I am to cross about it (almost) to post.

And the ad for core blood banking is doing my blood pressure no good at all.

Bon soir, & goodbye.

Maryz Tue 05-Mar-13 22:51:58

Ok, you can stay almost [gracious]

magimedi Tue 05-Mar-13 22:54:43

too not to - bloody fat fingers, just when I wanted to sound cross & in charge!

almostanotherday Tue 05-Mar-13 23:04:47

Thank you Maryz smile

almostanotherday Tue 05-Mar-13 23:05:20

I would of had to had a conversation with DH otherwise hmm

Maryz Tue 05-Mar-13 23:10:05

That would be dreadful shock. I haven't had to do that in years.

almostanotherday Tue 05-Mar-13 23:29:54

So glad you understand my need for MN smile

LadyBeagleEyes Wed 06-Mar-13 20:50:08

Slow again for me tonight.

AnyFucker Wed 06-Mar-13 21:25:33

Doing it again < grrr >

LineRunner Wed 06-Mar-13 22:01:56

Unusable again. Giving up.

It's been unusable for three nights.

Yes bad for me too. There's not even any football on tonight hmm

badinage Wed 06-Mar-13 22:32:49

Dreadful again tonight, earlier than 8p.m. and it's still pretty slow even now.

LineRunner Thu 07-Mar-13 12:32:55

Every other site I regularly use was fine the past few nights - but MN wasn't just slow, it had ground to a halt.

LineRunner Thu 07-Mar-13 12:33:58

(Christ that sounds like I use The Other Place - I was actually thinking of The Guardian online, honest)

badinage Thu 07-Mar-13 12:41:27

Me too. I just went elsewhere and everything else on the web was running fine. When I posted past midnight it was still diabolical and kept crashing, with the notice appearing that 'Mumsnet was offline' about 5 times in a 30 minute period.

LineRunner Thu 07-Mar-13 23:40:26

Well, tip top so far tonight! smile

Thank you.

badinage Fri 08-Mar-13 19:12:01

Seems to have been fast enough today, but we haven't got to the witching hours yet. Unfortunately instead this evening it kept logging me out, then going offline again and freezing so that I lost a long post.

LadyBeagleEyes Fri 08-Mar-13 19:15:09

It keeps logging out for me too.
Is it because of those bastard spambots though?
HQ seem to be fighting battles on all sides at the moment.
Bless their cotton socks.

OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 08-Mar-13 19:18:13

<in cotton socks>

AnyFucker Fri 08-Mar-13 19:18:35

I just went through my TIW list, marking ones to delete

Then got logged out and told "offline"

Fucking marvellous

Off we go again angry

mama04 Fri 08-Mar-13 19:51:06

I thought it was just me! blush Where are my posts? having to actually.... Talk to my Dh wink

My TIWs went kaput ages ago. I can't add new ones either now.

mama04 no need to resort to such desperate measures just yet! shock

LineRunner Sat 09-Mar-13 12:57:17

Seee, MN are sending all the power into my PC because I moan a lot, so yours have all gone kaput.
