    We have been updating the forum over the last 24 hours, some people will have had some downtime. We apologise if this has caused you any issues but it's all to make BHW more stable for the long term.
    Thanks for your understanding.

    BHW is like crack you have to have it and when it goes down you start bugging out.

    tx for the information

    BUT - the problem is quite severe - times by times forum is overloaded

    maybe you should change your hosting company? .. even if you like it and advertise here - problem has to be solved

    BHW is like wikipedia in a way. It is a huge repository of knowledge.
    Deleting threads is a bad idea.

    I wonder what's the reason that makes BHW occasionally boom for no reason. DDOS?

    Anyone having problems browsing on their phone? Opera mini seems to really hate BHW. Anytime I try to use it, it'll work for a while, and then I get "remote connection closed" errors.

    Takes 5-10 page reloads to get it to work again. Sigh. Need my bhw on the move!

    One of our upgrades coming soon is a mobile version of BHW. So you can have faster access on the move.
