The situation is this: Every day at 4:57pm CST to 5:03pm CST I cannot connect to Bleeping Computer. I have confirmed this by making a point to attempt connection numerous times. It is not browser related as I have checked on IE and Firefox. I can connect to any other website during that time. If anyone knows why this is or care to make a guess I am open to any suggestion. This is not by any means a problem that is causing me concern but does make me curious.

The BC board goes into a back up the data base routine three times a day.

EST @ 2am, 10am, and 6pm.

Sometimes it takes several minutes for a back up to complete.

//Edit to correct times above.

Thanks for the explanation. So I am not the only one who can't connect. I have noticed that the time shown at BC is 2 to 3 minutes ahead of my time. So that would make it exactly 5:00pm BC time. Thanks again.

Grinler knows that the BC's board clock is a bit off and will be correcting it in the near future.

I've been told that the back up process may get longer as the data base grows too.
Those few minutes of "stall" time are worth it though should the data base crash.
Recovery is much quicker with the multiple daily backups, and not so much data may be lost.
