Hello folks

Just wanted to let you know that Tech is planning some unusually protracted fiddling on THURSDAY MORNING, which will result in the site being out of action for about 15 minutes around 8am GMT.

Whatever you do, don't talk to your spouses. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.

Uhh, OK. But this means (main)Tech will be doing this at 3am his time? Or is it a UK Tech doing it?

RowanMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 05-Mar-14 16:51:36

It'll be our lovely in-office techs. We keep them tethered in the NW5 region.

SteamboatSprings Wed 05-Mar-14 16:52:42

Isn't that rather painful? grin

NymodigFruOla Wed 05-Mar-14 16:56:04

Soooo .... you have a 'Tech Shed' in NW5 too?

<I will be asking Chaos to report back after 26th March!>

Ah well, I'll have to go and have my shower at 8am, instead of 9am? grin

Glad you're not getting pore-ole-Tech to work at 3am his time!

Okay. I'll stay in bed then.

It won't affect me because I gave up MN for lent.

poor, poor techs

Sparklingbrook Wed 05-Mar-14 17:13:42

I read that as 'Outrage'. confused

ISeeYouShiverWithAntici Wed 05-Mar-14 17:14:26

Can I add how impressed I am that nobody has made a crude remark about tech's protracted fiddling.

look at you. all grown up. [proud]


Sparklingbrook Wed 05-Mar-14 17:58:07

What effect will the fiddling have. maybe it's the [kitten] emoticon? or the flushing out of trolls? shock

cozietoesie Wed 05-Mar-14 19:26:48

Just a thought, Rowan, but why don't you schedule a - say - weekly slot for Tech to use for maintenance? That way, people would know what was coming and Tech would be able to plan.

AgentProvocateur Wed 05-Mar-14 19:28:38

Noooo - I MN in Pret every morning between 8am and 8.30 before I go into work. I'll need to read a book!

NymodigFruOla Wed 05-Mar-14 19:34:24

Does anyone remember when there was a 'daily fiddling time' between about 3 - 3.15 am (UK) time? Not that it ever made any difference to me, as I'm usually snoring then!

ShamTech (MNHQ) Thu 06-Mar-14 08:18:14

Hmmm a [kitten] emoticon sounds really good. Maybe we'll sneak that in next time.

Fiddling is all done now.

Sparklingbrook Thu 06-Mar-14 08:48:24

Oh. I missed the fiddling. school run and sorting out washing.'Daily fiddling time' sounds all kinds of wrong Fru.

cozietoesie Thu 06-Mar-14 09:26:56

Yep. I didn't even notice it as too busy doing things. Sounds like a good time of day - although it would be too early to fiddle for me personally.

I misread that initially as 'outrage' also. I guess we've been on MN too long?


RowanMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 07-Mar-14 17:17:16

Actually if you could plan your collective outrage and let us know so that we can go on holiday pencil it in that would be awfully helpful grin
