    Just had an email saying an attempt had been made 5 times to log into my account from an IP that is not mine - looking it up its a hostwinds IP - Im wondering if that is someone trying to break in or if that is actually BHW server IP and its just a glitch? Anyone else had any problems this morning?

    Yup i got one too. i messaged peter about it.

    He said his ip system got messed up, and 199.59.60.205 is BHW's IP add. :)

    So theres something wrong with the system and nothing to worry about being hacked and stuff.
