What were you searching for?

Google is under a constant barrage of automated traffic putting huge loads on there server. They try to block automated bots and stuff using google to search for security exploits. If you are on a network with alot of users and a single gateway, this can also happen due to the amount of requests from one IP.

I would get that error when I uses a public proxy at school. But if that's the school's connection without a proxy, there might be some computers that have some pretty bad viruses.

Is it a particularly big school to send that much traffic?
