So I had my students go to NodeJS.org to download Node.js, and they did it with no problems. Two days later, I had them go to NodeJS.org again, but none of us could access the site, not even from the designated "teacher's computer" of the classroom I was using.
However my laptop, which was connected to the school's wireless service for teachers, could still access the site. I'm assuming classroom computers and the school wireless are on separate networks. Could this mean that the anti-DDos system at NodeJS.org basically mistook us for a potential DDoS and blocked us? There were about 20 students. A week later we could access the site again.
So I'm just wondering if anyone else experienced anything like this?
