Slow Gransnet

I find a couple of times a week, always in the morning, Gransnet takes ages to load onto my iPad. I try other sites such as Amazon to test and they load quickly, so it's not my broadband or my iPad.

Does anyone else have this problem. This morning was an instance of this, it's taken me about 10 minutes to get this message posted.

Yes. It's slow for me at the moment.

I wonder if it's because more people come on on a Saturday.

Ariadne Sat 29-Mar-14 08:38:30

Yes, me too this morning, though it was OK earlier today.

What a relief, I thought my steam driven ipad was coming to the end of its useful life and I can't afford to update.

It was slow at 6am our time which is 5am your time so don't think it was traffic. It is often slow at that time, I imagine they are doing something with the server.

I have a bit of an odd problem with it. Unless I refresh to page before I post anything, then when I do try to add post I get the whirly thing going round and round for ages. In the end I give up, copy what I've written, then refresh and paste it in. It then adds the post very quickly.

Pleased to know it's not just me.

Message to GNHQ ... are you using up all your allotted power making those bacon butties? hmm

I might have trouble once or twice a month but most of the time it's instant. I use my windows phone. Now when it comes to my ancient (5-6yrs) desk top, that's a different matter!

I found it a bit slow this morning but it often is on a Saturday. I think they do 'maintenance' at weekends hmm

Lona Sat 29-Mar-14 09:54:43

Of course they could just be hung over grin

Bacon sandwiches? No. Though there may have been some cakes in the oven

Hoping it is all ok for everyone now - may have been a temporary blip but do let us know if it's causing problems

Pooh! Hope they've the bacon butties at archery tomorrow! They didn't have any last weeksad

I have noticed Saturday mornings are usually slow, I wondered if technical stuff gets done then, but it seems not.

Galen Sat 29-Mar-14 20:20:30

Actually thinking of the butties at archery! Gives a new slant to the old English butts! This is where every man and boy had to practice archery every Sunday by law!

Gransnets really, really slow tonight on my computer - no problem with any other sites or my homepage...confused

Ana Sat 29-Mar-14 22:18:00

(missed the apostrophe out there - 'Gransnet's')

Hi Ana - just to say we are on it and hopefully back up to speed asap

Ana Sat 29-Mar-14 22:36:06

Thanks, Cari smile

Anne58 Sat 29-Mar-14 23:01:30

It's ridiculously slow at present, pages taking way too long to refresh, think I'll give up!

glammanana Sat 29-Mar-14 23:03:29

Same here phoenix taking ages to load & move pages off to bed for me I think !!

Ana Sat 29-Mar-14 23:03:59

It does make you feel like that, doesn't it? So frustrating!!!

Aka Sat 29-Mar-14 23:31:08

Gave up earlier but seems to have picked up speed now.

rosequartz Sat 29-Mar-14 23:42:09

So slow I'm going to bed
