    Was anybody else experiencing downtime on BHW today? I am assuming so judging by the large 2-3 hour gap in posts board wide but... :D

    Perhaps 'hostwinds' is not everything it is hyped to be ;)

    Yes I did, I'm getting kind of used to not being able to get on here pretty often.

    happens every now and then, someone was saying before that it's because the site gets some sort of dos/cyber attacks quite regularly

    Yes it's happening about every other day for me.

    Most likely DOS attacks, need to put some better protection on the server...

    It was a fairly regular occurance a month or so back.

    It would be down for hours every day but this has been the first time for a while I have noticed it down.

    I do miss it when its down. Am I addicted to BHW?.
