    I tried to log onto BHW today from work on both firefox and IE and they both just time out, I also tried the same at home and get the same thing. I called my brother up and he said he can get on the page just fine. Right now I am at home using a proxy and its working just fine. Any ideas what could be going on?

    maybe your ISP is having DNS problems.. or your firewall / router is blocking this site?

    I think the server must be going down a lot. I have had limited access for the past week or so as well

    I've been having similar issues the last days both from home and work. What's good about this is that I can take some time from the board and do some brainstorming on new ideas

    This has been an ongoing problem for me as well, I usually end up logging in via a proxy and am good, when that goes down, I usually am able to log back in without the proxy. At first I thought it was the site going down, but then was I was finally able to log in I noticed that there were posts during the time I couldn't connect. (I usually get "the connection was reset error messages).

    Yeah me too.. I got that error when that site was down.. maybe the server only allows a certain amount of connections, and drops the others.

    i was having this problem to awhile back but i found out what the problem was and it was on my end. i had a program that had dns acceleration turned on and what it does is caches the dns server list that you browse so shit loads quicker and snappier. so if you have any program that have some kind of dns acceleration turned on then turn it off and it should work. worked for me...

    I am on the west coast of the US...late at night I usually have a timeout error and I can't login. I will refresh my IP multiple times and then I can login. Not sure if this is because I finally found an IP fast enough or the website server fixed itself while I jumped through hoop and hurtles to fix it on my end.

    My Firefox and IE can't access the site. But now I'm on Google Chrome, and everything seems fine. :)
