    Ugh...all tonight the site has been unbearably slow. When I load the page it shows a screen that says, "checking your browser..." for about 10 seconds.

    What are you checking my browser for? Get out of my browser, please.

    Then, the site just crashes half the time.

    Anyone else experiencing this?

    If you're going to flame me because of the need for this kind of software, go ahead. It doesn't change the need for a decent user experience.

    Yesterday, some mates in other countries were having some problems and receiving '403' errors, etc. I am assuming that BHW has been hit with a powerful DDoS attack, and it is best to only allow trusted connections in. These types of things are usually perfected later on, but for now -- it is just to keep BHW safe, and accessible for you and I.
