Default Is it just me........

...or are others having trouble accessing the site for the last couple of days?

It either times out, says "site not found", or gives me an "Internal Server Error" message.

It's taken me nearly 20 attempts to get on today, and a similar number of tries yesterday

It may just be MY crappy AOL/dial up connection

Default Me too!

I had trouble today too, but it seems to have righted itself. Perhaps it was the solar flare expected today? (yes, I am kidding!)

That's actually a real possibility if any parts of the connection are relayed by sattelite

There was a posting on FB from BWH saying there were computer woes, hoping to have all back to speed soon!

A security update went awry and caused no end of problems for much of two days. The whole site was down for periods. Other times, only the blogs and Forum were affected.

The problem with super-tight security is that new updates don't always play nice with all the other, older software.

All should be well, now, but if you notice anything wrong, please let me know via email.

Thanks!


Oliver

It's nice to know it wasn't on my end for once!

Everything seems to be working great now

Thanks for the update
