    Not sure what's up but I cannot access this site when using my regular Internet connection. I get a connection timed out error. I can access the site no problem via another IP. My account is still active as well. Who can I refer this question to?

    my ip is fine, but i get a ton of database errors, google saying link is broken, server timeouts, you name it.

    i know BHW has a lot of traffic, but damn they need to upgrade their server.

    last time this happened to me it was like that about for a month so i visited this site using proxies :) I know that i'm most likely wrong but i think that admins has their hands on this ;) ... exampl. banning people for day to month who do not contribute that much but do posting alot.

    Morning BHW!

    They are trying to hide from some DOS attacks that I personally do not think they can ever hide from, but that is just my opinion.;)
    Your isp was blocked by the admins here obviously.
    Some, if not all the ips I have seen come through here, are now somehow attacking bhw for some reason.
    Man, I hope this is not the end of bhw!

    Sounds like BHW is hardening the server to the max! Now even my new IP is blocked. I am doing nothing more than reading the forum. I am using a VPN to post this. Perhaps the firewall is blocking specific ISPs. :(

    I've had this same problem for several months. I am able to load 4-5 pages using my home IP without problem each day, but after that nothing is able to load on this site. However, when I go through a proxy everything is fine.
