Because everything is slowing down!

onepieceoflollipop Tue 23-Sep-08 20:56:52

mnhq I think you should upgrade to duracell batteries instead of trying to manage with cheapo supermarket ones. grin

If that doesn't help then I think Tech is taking a few too many tea breaks. wink

TheConfusedOne Tue 23-Sep-08 21:05:39

Think Tech may well be under the table lying in spilt whisky!

onepieceoflollipop Tue 23-Sep-08 21:07:46

Well he hasn't appeared on the thread to dispute that TCO! grin

WilfSell Tue 23-Sep-08 21:09:08

It is a nightmare. What is going on? Has the donkey gone on strike?

So much slowness lately, in the last few weeks. Time for a new donkey or a new treadmill if you ask me.

SoupDragon Tue 23-Sep-08 21:09:45

IIRC they're waiting for a new server to arrive so there's not a lot they can do about it right now.

onepieceoflollipop Tue 23-Sep-08 21:11:17

Yes I know SoupDragon but we are just amusing ourselves; can't get on the interesting threads quickly enough. grin

It's going to be fab when they get the new system isn't it. No long pauses when we are mid rant discussion. :

I typed out a really long, witty and insightful post (for once) then lost it as I got timed out

That's it for another 5 years then....

WideWebWitch Tue 23-Sep-08 21:38:42

it's slow again tonight. Aaggh. Just as well, dh wants to talk to me

YetMoreTech (MNHQ) Tue 23-Sep-08 21:41:11

We actually have the additional server (it's additional, rather than a replacement) already, but bringing it to the party is a bit more effort than just plugging it in and pushing the power button! I am tentatively thinking Thursday night, but no promises.

onepieceoflollipop Tue 23-Sep-08 21:43:29

Thursday this week? (oh I was going to go out then, I wouldn't want to miss the super-speeding-up of mnet!)

YetMoreTech (MNHQ) Tue 23-Sep-08 21:45:31

Okay onepieceoflollipop, we'll do it next week instead.

LittleMyDancingForJoy Tue 23-Sep-08 21:47:36

don't listen to her, we'll all be here on Thursday grin speed us up, YetMoreTech!

LadyMuck Tue 23-Sep-08 21:47:40

Nooooooooooooooo, just hurry up and read the manual. It is slooooooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwww.

onepieceoflollipop Tue 23-Sep-08 21:49:07

No, I'll stay in specially! (no pressure. wink)

CantSleepWontSleep Tue 23-Sep-08 21:55:02

Thursday sounds good Tech. Would be most grateful if you could manage it before I give birth.

Dominion Tue 23-Sep-08 21:58:44

Yes please.

It is like watching a slow motion fart.

YetMoreTech (MNHQ) Tue 23-Sep-08 22:42:20

I was joking about delaying it just for onepieceoflollipop. I'd do it tomorrow night but I've got a date.

CantSleepWontSleep, should I text you just to check you've not gone in to labour?

MadamAnt Tue 23-Sep-08 22:50:46

Would it help if we asked everyone only to post if they have something truly interesting / witty / scandalous to say?


CantSleepWontSleep Wed 24-Sep-08 07:22:20

Just keep an eye on the boards YMT, and you'll know if I've gone into labour or not wink.

KatyMac Wed 24-Sep-08 07:52:19

Are you allowed to go on dates?

Is it in your contract?

I'm not sure I agreed to it hmm?

LittleMyDancingForJoy Wed 24-Sep-08 10:26:44

Are you dating a MNetter? wink

YetMoreTech (MNHQ) Wed 24-Sep-08 13:54:29

Well, my wife uses mumsnet sometimes. And the person with whom I am going out for dinner Justine once tried to hire. We're an incestuous bunch. "Date" was a pitiful attempt to seem young, cool and desirable, at which my wife laughs.

Anyway, we're still looking good for Thursday, unless I get a better offer.

LittleMyDancingForJoy Wed 24-Sep-08 14:44:35

I'm fairly sure you're not the only person who tries to sound younger, cooler and more exciting on here wink

onepieceoflollipop Wed 24-Sep-08 19:34:44

I haven't seen a poster with the name "YetMoreTechsWife" hmm

Are you sure she uses mumsnet sometimes?
