Previously, if you were stationed in one of the places where we have overseas Giz sites (Australia, Germany, Japan, etc.) you could use us.gizmodo.com and skip the auto-redirecting we have and still visit the US Giz site. But, ho! It's currently wonky right now, and even going to the US.giz URL forwards you to your local site.
Good news is our tech team's working on it now, and there's nothing you need to do on your end. Just chillax and we'll be back soon.
