    Post Weird Question

    After a long day at work and intermittent opportunities to jump on the forums, I will usually try to jump on the forums at night to see what's crackin'.

    But to my surprise in the era of technology it would seem that someone dun turnt da lice out!

    My question is, is this hosted on someones box and they turn the server off at night because I always get a blank page instead of the usual.

    Just wondering

    Thanks!

    I am on and off the forum all the time, day and night. I have been on at all hours of the night and I know that some of the members on the other side of the globe would miss out if the forum we off???? I would wonder if you have something going on with your local service provider.

    IE or Firefox?

    I didhave that problem with a couple of other forums I was using with Internet Explorer but when I changed over to FireFox a couple of years ago, the problems went away. Maybe try to refresh the page? If your using an unsecured wireless router, there maybe people borrowing your internet and slowing you way down. Don't know, just throwing some possibles out there!!

    HF is hosted on a dedicated server in a colocated datacenter. It's definitely not turned off at night.
