Can you peddle a bit faster?

usualsuspect3 Wed 26-Sep-12 21:31:32

Or pedal?

DorsetKnob Wed 26-Sep-12 21:31:58

Yep, definitely need to peddle faster.

Sort it or I'll have to go to the other side sad

usualsuspect3 Wed 26-Sep-12 21:45:59

Annoying innit?

It's pissing me off now.

I am starting to take it out on a poor, innocent laptop.

I may have nasty dreams tonight about that little blue whirly thing that means your computer is trying hard to load stuff. << technical jargon >>

Me too. Me thinks tech lives in the US, and he doesn't get out of bed till the afternoon coz Justine/Olivia/fill in the blank isn't there to kick him up the arse backside grin Seriously MNHQ, please can you sort this out?

usualsuspect3 Wed 26-Sep-12 21:58:37

Can someone poke tech, please

CuriousMama Wed 26-Sep-12 22:03:31

Ahhh so it's not just me then. I was wondering as other sites are ok?

RowanMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 26-Sep-12 22:47:38

Sorry about this - we will get Tech to take a look

usualsuspect3 Wed 26-Sep-12 22:49:23

It's ok now. but it has happened every night for the last few days.

Thank you Rowan.

Hi, as they say on the radio it's "sheer weight of traffic." About 9pm is our busiest time. We are working on adding more servers to increase our capacity, which will help. Sorry for the hassle in the meantime...

LineRunner Wed 26-Sep-12 23:38:34

That's what you said last night, Tech. When you were in a Manhatten cocktail bar.

IamtheZombie Wed 26-Sep-12 23:39:54

Zombie understands about sheer weight of traffic. She remembers the days when the entire internet slowed down as America got off work, got home and logged on to play.


Recently it has only been MN that seems to be affected. She hopes you solve your server capacity issues soon. <stares hard at Justine>

BTW, Tech, other folk today have been complaining about missing bookmarks and other bits. If you have a look at this thread: , it appears it may be a browser issue.

<Tick the fucking Convert links box before posting you silly Zombie>

Zombie thought it was a Brooklyn cocktail bar, LineRunner.

<ponders whether Brooklyn has cocktail bars>

LineRunner Wed 26-Sep-12 23:43:50

Was it a Brooklyn cocktail bar, drinking a Manhatten? Whilst clutching at a Rusty Nail and a Screwdriver to try to fix MN.

Nagoo Wed 26-Sep-12 23:44:35

So what you're saying is we need to get all the newbies to fuck off and it'll run nicely again wink?

LineRunner Wed 26-Sep-12 23:47:15

But it's 9pm on the dot. Spooky.

IamtheZombie Wed 26-Sep-12 23:57:47

Maybe 9pm is when Tech has a SlowComfortableScrewUpAgainstTheWall?

LineRunner Wed 26-Sep-12 23:59:39

He'll get backache.

IamtheZombie Thu 27-Sep-12 00:05:56

Maybe we could offer to rub in some Hot Buttered Rum?

Brooklyn definitely has cocktail bars. And nightclubs. Lots of things to keep Tech distracted.
