    Just wondering what do you think the problem could have been? Obviously there are posts from yesterday, so it wasn't a problem with the site..

    If you look at the number of new posts it's much lower than usual. A lot of people haven't been able to access the site in the last few days. I usually manage to access it twice a day out of 10 attempts.

    Yeah, I normally don't have much problem getting in (except around 12AM MST). The last 2 days I've seen the screen resolve about twice.

    It really forces you to examine your BHS priorities:

    If you only get in for 3 minutes, 2 or 3 times a day do you...

    DOWNLOAD FIRST!

    or

    Browse through the forums for updated comments on threads you're following!

    AARGH! Cannot...choose :eek:

    bhw already has its own dedicated server, dual quad core xeon, 8gig ram, dual 10k rpm hdd, dual hdd for backup as well

    nothing wrong with the box, just the usual script kiddie bullshit

    oh and a note to the little kiddies attacking, is that all uv got? really? lol

    F%^cking script kiddies. They need to get a life.

    I am sure you guys have heard this but if you have the appache file that tells what version you're running say something different *wink* *wink* then it is much harder for the kiddies to know what version to try and expoit.

    most will just go away and jerk off to their mom's pictures

    But BHW going down is good for those people who ready but can't committ to anything.

    I remember I got a month ban for inappropriate language or something stupid like that (I think I yelled at a Jr. VIP or something) and I was forced to be unable to used BHW and over that month I was able to build something that currently makes my $500 on 99%autopilot.. no too shabby

    Any noticable country IP blocks you've gotten hit with?

    I've been getting hit mainly from China, Saudi Arabia (and nearby), Russia and some German. With the occasional odd duck from Belgium, UK, and some country called the U. S. :cool:

    Of course it could all be running through proxies, but it's hard to believe that thousands and thousands of attempts are coming through proxies from the same country in different Class B blocks. And when a few hundred IPs a week get automatically banned by my firewall for port sniffing and login fails...well, ya know.

    And, I'm getting tired of reading my firewall logs, looking for another sumbitch block to BAN! :rolleyes:

    (My little headaches are all intrusion attempts, not DDOS attacks.)

    Great tip, but they're using nginix. Or so the error message when the site won't load says.

    DOH! Unless they're already doing what you suggest and nginix is just a massive fakeout! :D
