Tech (MNHQ) Tue 27-Sep-11 22:06:03

Hi sorry about that. The server was having a bit of a conniption (technical term.) It should be OK now.

RebeccaMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 27-Sep-11 22:06:08

My nana used to call toddler tantrums Conniption Fits grin

From Wiktionary:
Noun
conniption fit (plural conniption fits)
A fit of anger or panic expressed verbally loudly and with overt bodily gestures.

Just what did the server dooo?

ColdSancerre Tue 27-Sep-11 22:20:01

Not that I know how to do it on a mac as I'm on iPad and I just hold the key down and it gives me options.

No crisis here. I used the downtime constructively to beat DD's score on Bejewelled Blitz. Ha!
