In the spirit of full disclosure, I'll "fess up" a little more then :) We 
did have the cname for the help pages point to an old rotation, something 
that is getting rectified, and the timeout in the javascript was a tad too 
aggressive (would lead to some unwanted false negatives), so that timeout 
is going to be up'ed to between 5 and 10 seconds (we are measuring a few 
different things, so which value will be used will depend on what is being 
measured where).

Thank you for catching this -- we are still working on finishing up the 
monitoring component of flag day related content :)
