Network timeouts

I'm experiencing network timeouts while trying to fetch libraries from
Running `bundle --verbose`, I noticed some requests were being rate-limited, so I want to check whether my IP address has been blackholed, or whether you can suggest any further debugging steps to find the root cause.

I tried an alternate gem server ( and found I could fetch libraries from there without issue, but this doesn't seem to be affecting other users.

When I run `bundle --verbose`, I see several successful requests, followed by some rate-limit errors, then more successes:

    HTTP 200 OK
    HTTP 429 Too Many Requests
    HTTP 200 OK

A few requests to older (`/api/v1`) endpoints follow, and then it just hangs.

    Query Gemcutter Dependency Endpoint API: faraday-middleware,celluloid-gems
    HTTP 200 OK
    Query List: []

It will sit for quite a while (about 5 minutes, though I haven't timed it) before finally reporting a timeout.

Hoping you can point me in the right direction.
Thank you.
