    I'm one of the few BWTF regulars, and I was blindsided by Ben's decision to close down the site for a bit. Any fellow members migrating around the interbutts now that it's down?

    Yeah, that sited rocked, and hopefully will continue to rock after it's back up.

    I really like that site and his reviews, which are always great reads.

    Man I love that site. I use to visit it several times a day, but the past month or so I have not been able to. Sucks, I hope all is well. Ben is a great guy.

    Odd, the site's giving me a page stating it's on hiatus. Clear your cache?
