I'm having a few issues with my internet tonight, but MN seems particularly bad.

Or is it just my fucking annoying piece of shit Internet?

Sorry we are on it.

It's ridiculous tonight...the pages mostly time out because I have to wait so long and it took 3 attempts just to log in.

Also, the threads I've clicked on have stopped changing colour again (happened this time last night but was fine all day) so it's hard to know what I've read and what I haven't.

Zombie thanks you.

Slow here too.

Really irritating this evening, trying to update the snow watch thread and I'm losing posts and taking forever to load. Might have to give up tonight which would be a pity.

Thank you,Olivia and sorry about my nightly 9 o'clock moan.

It's unusable, sadly, and this is the last time I try to post this post.

I don't understand why MN is pretty much unusable past a certain time in the evening?

I thought it was my internet until I saw this thread and checked out other sites.

BrokenBananaTantrum Wed 16-Jan-13 22:03:42

Thought it was just me!

I have been having trouble for a few weeks with mumsnet and have contacted tech staff but no improvement - still have to open 3 or 4 windows and use mumsnet in all of them to save waiting half my life for the screens to change............. < forgotten person >

Isn't it dry January? Have the servers gone dry and they get pissy when it's drinky time?

It's slow, sooooo slow. I had to watch the flipping footie tonight as I could barely access Mn. I was in withdrawal!

Ok, is it time for us to set up a PayPal account and all chuck a £1 in to pay the electric bill or new servers?

Oh it's painful...
