How... just how...

Although I'm surprised this doesn't happen more often with other websites because honestly the amount of FRC people.

How long were you on there?

Yesterday I spent over 3 hours selecting hardware for various projects and never saw this.

I think it is because we have multiple students in our computer lab doing search requests at the same time and it was all coming from our school network. Just my guess.

I’ve done this solo when I was downloading a bunch of hardware configurations very quickly. My best guess is it’s a rate based thing— if you’re just downloading a file, searching, downloading again you’ll never run into it, but if you open up a bunch of pages to download a few dozen screws and then download them very rapidly there’s a problem.

Maybe you should call McMaster to see if you can be whitelisted.

Go incognito before they ban you for 24 hours.

I think some people don't get this warning cause they actually buy stuff rather than browsing really fast in what could look like a DDOS attack.

You really should call them if anything like this happens, they have AMAZING customer service and it puts a human on the other end refreshingly fast!

I got this error the other day as well. Can confirm incognito mode works.

When I was joking about getting this message in the TBA Slack, someone mentioned they did call McMaster support, and after talking to several people, incognito mode was their suggested solution.

Had the same thing occur at work. You can set up an we account and they will recognize you. Does have to be from a company or existing customer it think.
After I set up a account this wasn't a problem.

I was logged into my account (and have ordered from them before) and still received the error.

The most important shelf for robotics: Machinery's handbook, McMaster Catalog and a dictionary. Who needs the internet?

Almost right.

Try the shelf below--All three Behind the Design books. Make sure those are on there.



Oh, and I can vouch that if you order enough a catalog shows up. We've got quite a few at work...

/sigh ... sliding mentor card across the table... Missed them, even though Marshall would disagree, I'd put them in front of the dictionary in importance order.

I think McMaster changed something on their site to reduce bot traffic or something. While I was shopping for parts yesterday I got a "You must log in to continue browsing" prompt that blocked me from seeing any items after about 30 minutes of searching normally.

I was able to switch browsers and continue normally, which tells me they're probably doing it with cookies (so if you clear your cookies it will probably work again). Kind of an annoying feature though.

I see that McMaster likes you enough that they sent you their newest catalog. I got mine a week or 2 ago!

I honestly can't figure out how you get one... we do spend a lot with them but likely not as much as others that I know don't have them... It's quite odd... Our last one before this one was 119 if that tells you anything.

I think the threshold for getting a McMaster catalog might be different if you have a consumer versus business account with them.

I think you have to have an account with them. I'm not sure... We got our Catalog last week. It makes a great paper weight.

Can confirm. I used one to hold a paper template onto something at work not long ago while the glue dried.
