408 Request Timeout, is it just me?

Why is this error something I only see on StackExchange websites?

HTTP 408: Your browser did not send a complete request in time.

  • Do you have a slow or otherwise unstable internet connection? – Lix Jul 22 '12 at 6:13
  • No. I have seen that very error on many different connections. Some fast and some slow. – Anirudh Ramanathan Jul 22 '12 at 6:14
  • I get that error with stackexchange websites as well. Two facts that may help: 1. when it arrives, I'm heavily uploading or downloading on my 1mbps connexion. 2. when it arrives, only stack exchange websites are affected, the other I browse are fine (slower but fine). Hope this helps. – user150926 Jul 22 '12 at 12:46
