I haven’t seen anyone else mention this but for the last week when I refresh the home page I get the following more often than not:
- boingboing.net is being configured.
The page you are trying to access is protected by Project Shield, but recent configuration changes are propagating through our system. Try reloading the page in a minute.
Initially I assumed as the text says, that config changes are happening. But now I have seen this too many times for too many days.
I refresh the page every 30-60 minutes to see what is new. So I shouldn’t look like a DDOS attack I would think. Once I hit the error, any further refreshing is 100% to fail. if I go away for awhile and try later it has a good chance of working again.
I am accessing BB from work. there are a couple hundred people here but I’m pretty sure the entire company is not refreshing BB all day.
Not a big deal for me, but just thought I would mention it to make sure those running things are aware.
