Mumsnet offline Thursday night

Mumsnet will be offline tonight, Thursday, from just before 11pm or so. We're doing a few small updates and a bit of housekeeping. It will be off for a while unfortunately, so maybe an early night and check in over your cereal in the morning?

I'm not going to offer MSN updates this time - you'd not believe the story from last time I did that, even if I did tell you, which I won't. The good news is that if it goes badly there will be at least a dozen people to blame. If it goes well I'll be around to take all the credit.

Let's just hope we don't hit the headlines this time.

nice one! Had me going till the comment from Ed Balls

tootiredtothink · 29/01/2009 09:18

ROFFLE @ article.

Although it's a tad scary if you didn't know mumsnet, it might even send you off to netmums.

I think Tech is going to surprise us with some lovely new emoticons .

tootiredtothink · 29/01/2009 09:19

FAQ have you not packed yet??????

FAQtothefuture · 29/01/2009 09:24

I've done some. DH has got DS3 now though (picked him up yesterday lunchtime and then my day fell to pieces so I didn't get much done) but I'm child free while the others are at school. So just having coffee and going to crack on with it, not moving the bulk of my stuff until Saturday and DS1 and 2 will be with DH from tomorrow afternoon as well so I'll have Friday night too.............

Cies · 29/01/2009 09:29

Rofl. You almost had me, until the Ed Balls comment. I did wonder that it must be a rather slow news day

FAQtothefuture · 29/01/2009 09:34

at those of you who didn't get the spoof until the ed balls comment

surely "fina gord" was a big enough giveaway

YeahBut · 29/01/2009 09:35
