I get this message a lot, on pretty much every site I go to. Eventually if I keep hitting refresh it works. But I have no idea what this is or what's causing it. Anyone know?

Before I googled that, my guess was it was a mesh / multiple-access-point network where you were in between two nodes and the computer is switching back and forth a lot because it couldn't figure out which one was stronger.

It means, closely, but not exactly: you have entered into a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. It is a dimension of your imagination. It is an area which is called the Twilight Zone.

How about this one: went to twitter on my laptop and all it had was a blue link saying CONTINUE at top of otherwise blank page. The link was right back to Twitter and the same page.

Don't try to change the subject, DD. We're trying to figure out if all of the porn sites I visit cause a connection error.

I heard it was a PEBKAC (Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Chair).
While here in Brazil we also have the Keyboard and chair formulation, this type of problem is also known as a BIOS error.

BIOS = Bicho Ignorante Operando o Sistema = Ignorant Animal Operating the System
