    For a couple weeks now, site is brutal.
    This has been on going for a few months already.
    How is it not fixed by now?

    Have seen LOTS of times over the past couple of days where valid pages will result in 500 or 503 errors - seems due to loading. I hope that a good solution is being worked on.

    *It's frustratin' when I can't get my BHW fix now that I'm back... ya know?*

    When they upgraded, the site was rather very fast. I assume it's the host. Well, that's all I'd assume - duh. Maybe still on a 100Mbps connection, and it's not fast enough for BHW? Hopefully HostWinds doesn't oversell...

    Also, why do these error pages always re-direct to some clickbank offer?

    For the love of god how is this not fixed yet?
    I don't understand how Hostwinds is proud to have their name as the host of this forum.

    Right here, right now.
    Working fine and fast for me from UK and USA for last few weeks (apart from when the IP change happened, detailed in the lounge by Damien).

    All much better now than it used to be this time last year.

    was sometimes slow - sometimes no page load
    sometimes ide post 1 message on a post and ide
    constantly get u can post for 60 seconds for
    a duplicate post? it was only 1 post. page not found
    see how it goes this week.

    I'm at work right now and we are on a fiber optic connection and the speed is great. However, when I go home to my cable connection 1.5 Mps then it's slower but that's my problem.
