It's been dropping off line quite a bit lately. "Unable to connect to server" seems to be a regular occurrence. Somebody forget to pay the hosting bill?

We have been experiencing some hosting issues as well as server overload. I know a new server has been purchased, but not sure when it will be in production. Tom is also researching alternate hosting facilities. Hopefully a permanant solution will be reached soon.

I experienced this as well. While it caused me to not be able to entertain myself it is not an overwhelming problem. It is free after all!!!

As this seems to be the fastest growing and largest BB forum community I suupose we should expect this to happen occaisionally. Technology is great but it does break and become outdated.

Tom does a great job at keeping things going and actually keeps us informed as well

My apologies guys, I have had countless of issues with the management company in charge of the server running BBF, a new server has been put online that BBF will be transferred to in the new year.

I just came back from Poland, and I will work on the new server once I get some time.

Glad to hear a solution is in the works. As was said earlier, this being one of the largest and fastest growing forums, we have to expect this at some point. and Tom, welcome back from Poland.

This forum is a wealth of knowlege, but has been painfully slow loading and sometimes (as mentioned above) fails all together. I hope that the new server clears all that up. I really appreciate the service you provide.

Thank you.

Hope it all goes well with the upgrade.
I did notice when tracing to the URL you can always ping the IP address but cannot always do a Network lookup beyond the Root DNS server. I did receive a few DNS database errors also. Possible the secondary DNS server or your ISP is having some issues also and it's not all your server

Anyway it's a great site and thanks for the effort.

Welcome back Tom
