    Does anybody have problems with database connection today? There are suspiciously little posts today.

    I was facing similar problems until I started using a VPN, now I am able to access BHW easily and every single time.

    Today was yet another day which frustrated me a lot. I wasn't able to log-in into BHW, in fact opening the site was an extremely slow process and was failing to open ultimately.

    As I know many members get very anxious :) when they are unable to get into their favorite site (BHW, needless to say ;)), will it be a good idea to have a separate related site where members can communicate with each other and check the status from time to time? A presence on Tweet3r could be a good example... (I also don't know if we have an account there, official or not).

    Just a suggestion to form a solution for us countless BHW 'addicts'! :D

    Dear Mods, please help an old heart to stay stable and pumpin' a little longer... lol

    well have had access problems a bit mostly on the weekend but im sure that was server overload as also showed database connection error. weir how you all cannot access al that where do u live ? if its temporary might just be a DNS issue but or such a long period seems like censorship.

    One more question, considering that many people from India including myself are unable to browse the forum, has BHW been banned by Indian ISPs?

    Its not a ban from ISPs in India. I guess our admins and mods are taking countermeasures to protect our forum from attack(probably DDOS, not sure about that). They are banning suspicious IPs left and right. It would come to normal for sure.
