So I will stop reading and go to sleep!

Yep Yabu.
You're also assuming that mn has all its members in the same timezone hmm

Just press the x smile

Only if it also closes down overnight in my timezone (1:30pm here)

Homelybird Mon 10-Oct-11 01:35:29

Oh yes didn't think that through grin

And I have no will power and will be grumpy on the school run that is not very long away now but for done reason I just keep on browsing!!

No thanks! I'd never get to waste all my time catch up on what is happening!

Not all Mnetters are in the UK!

What would all of us non-sleepers do in the early hours?

MN has been my salvation since stbxh walked out a few weeks ago.

MN does close down for a few minutes at about 3am UK time, for techy updatey reasons, I guess. I know because that's 10am here.

Ooh that's a reason for staying up, to see it happen...

I sound like some mad astronomer waiting for a once in a lifetime occurence.

<note to self - get a life>

Homelybird Mon 10-Oct-11 01:53:42

That sounds like something I want to stay up for to

<I too need to get a life>

But I am going to switch off my phone and shut my eyes. Fingers crossed I fall asleep

Don't do it, Childof, you'll be exhausted tomorrow morning and your RL friends will think you are bonkers!

Hahaha. It's really not very exciting. You type a long, well-reasoned post which sums up the OP's dilemma and presents her with an elegant and simple solution, and then you press 'send' and you get a 'MN is down for backup' message, and then you sit there for fifteen minutes pressing refresh. And by you I mean me. Except for the bit about well-reasoned elegance, obviously.

ChildofIsis Mon 10-Oct-11 02:17:29

They already know that.
I'm not sleeping well at present and am managing on a few snatched hours here and there. Quite how I'm not sure.

I'm on a day off tomorrow and may even get to go back to bed after xh comes for DD to go to school.
I may indulge myself.

It's quite nice to be up all hours without some grumpy arse telling me it's time I was in bed.

ChildofIsis Mon 10-Oct-11 02:18:35

Was it as exciting as it sounds Tortoise?

Bearskinwoolies Mon 10-Oct-11 02:22:26

Yabu - I don't finish work til 2.30am, and when I get home I'm on MN.

MrsTerryPratchett Mon 10-Oct-11 02:44:55

It is the evening here AND it is Thanksgiving tomorrow so we have the day off.

Tortoiseonthehalfshell Mon 10-Oct-11 02:59:40

Possibly I am not explaining this well.

It's a bit like this:

























And then it comes back.

Homelybird Mon 10-Oct-11 03:09:12

I'm still awake but missed the 3 am shutdown (dammit),

My sister has just sent me a step by step video of her completing a 5by5 square rubix cube. Not sure who has the bigger problems me or her hmm

<goes off to consider family therapy>

Switch off the computer/phone now.

Go and put your pyjamas on.

Brush your teeth.

And go to bed!

Don't forget to set your alarm.

Nighty night!

ZonkedOut Mon 10-Oct-11 04:21:55

YABU, what else would I do while feeding the baby at night?

I haven't caught the 3am backup for some though. I guess DD's night feed has just got a bit later. But I did wonder if they had stopped doing the shut down thing, sometimes it used to last 20 minutes or so.

Tortoiseonthehalfshell Mon 10-Oct-11 06:06:23

Actually I wondered that - it's the middle of the day for me, so it caught me every time (I stay logged in at work, keeps me sane during long tedious telephone calls), and I haven't seen it in weeks.

tryingtoleave Mon 10-Oct-11 09:40:30

Yup, it used to shut down exactly when I sat down with my lunch, having got dd down for a nap. I thought it was a conspiracy against Australians.

MyBrainIsOutOfTune Mon 10-Oct-11 13:05:10

The 3am (4am where I am) down for backup is usually my signal that I really, really need to go to bed. When even Mumsnet kicks me out.
