Evening Slowdown

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?

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

Yes, it's terrible!

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.

Sorry Maryz hmm

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

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!

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.

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.

BarbaraWoodlouse Wed 06-Mar-13 22:11:18

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.

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.
