    Not sure if it's server or something IP related. I'm in Texas. A few days ago I couldn't access BHW for a couple days, server wouldn't respond. I hid my IP and it worked fine.
    This happened one other time a few weeks ago also, and I posted thread here asking about it.

    Strange. At first I tried one of those IP check sites and it said it wasn't just me. Then later it said it was just me. However I remembered switching IPs worked for me the last time this happened. And that did the trick again.

    Switch your mouse from your right hand to your left hand. That always works for me. :)

    Houston, Tx here

    BHW is down for me about 25% of the time or so. Also when I first tried to log into the site at work, the IP appearently was temp banned, which is funny considering this is a 3 man operation and i'm the only one to do internet marketing

    I suppose we could have gotten a fresh IP from our ISP and it just happened to belong to someone in the area that got banned on BHW, but thats kinda pushing things lol

    Past that, every day I use it (for the most part), at some point, i get database/server errors and have to go bhw-less for a few hours then come try again later.

    anyways, moral of the story: BHW is a great place, but is pretty damn unstable. I'd recommend new hosting imo.

    Same here. Since 4 days ago I can't opened BHW but using VPN does the trick. And now I can. But right I now can't PM, when I click submit I got 500 internal server error. What gives?

    Anyway, I'll just enjoy it while still can :D

    Yea, this place is falling apart. I used to happily donate money, and I can say I wont be donating again. Abusive moderators and constant downtime with no accountability...Why would I give a dime?

    guys, if bhw is not working, go to http://www.host-tracker.com and search the site..
    if a majority of the results show in red, it is dns or server problem..
    still you not getting bhw, change your DNS to http://www.opendns.com. they are based on new york something and you will get your dns updated fast...

    also, if you still believe bhw is blocked for you, call your isp and talk about it..
    back in 2009, my isp tataindicombroadband was blocking bhw and i called them and told them I cant live with bhw. they given access to bhw again..
