In Which Washington University's Servers Go Haywire

Okay, the message "Somehow, another computer on the network has the same IP Address you do" is not the sort of message one expects or desires to find upon attempting to find the latest rumors on the Internets. Okay, that wasn't the exact text of the message, but it was the general gist of it.

It's okay after a power cycle (ipconfig /release, ipconfig /renew just gave errors, so a power cycle and ipconfig /renew were what it took), but how can that ever happen in the first place?
