    for the past two weeks it's been torture reading bhw because it's been very very slow to load up. i don't have any problems with any other site and speed is normal

    but w/bhw it just takes forever for posts and pages to load up. is it just me? cuz i haven't heard anybody else say anything. i don't know why bhw would be loading so slow for me when all other sites load up ok

    Yes it is slow for me too-it may have something to do with the
    browser your using and if like me your using Internet explorer 8
    as suggested elsewhere on the net it's possible that the security
    updates and malicious software removal updates are slowing
    things down.
    I've had I.E 8 operating much faster than this before and I remember
    it slowed down after accepting those pesky updates!!!
    Guess I'll have to do an uninstall.Don't accept automatic updates
    and go custom.

    SOMEBODY should take note of this. When i click on a thread it takes forever to load up all the posts in that thread. If there are more than 20 it takes forever to retrieve them and i have to wait till they load up which takes at least 30 seconds and longer. Im running FF prior to the latest updates that i have not installed due to issues.

    Same here, very very very very slow, but only at specific times. Maybe they should upgrade servers. Also last few weeks i keep getting 501 errors for like 1 hour.

    Its pretty shit, sometimes i just leave bhw and go search or look for news somewhere else...........

    I get timeouts and 501 errors too, I thought it was me. Good to find this, I was going to start one myself.
