This error means you have hit the GitHub API rate limit. The limit is imposed on the IP address of your computer (not the server).  The error will go away in about an hour.

You can usually view about 5-7 projects before hitting the API limit for an hour.

GitHub recently changed the error behavior which is why this error doesn’t look as clean as it used to.

Keep in mind, this API limit is applied across all unauthenticated GitHub API requests made from all devices on your public-facing IP address. This includes requests to fetch tutorials.

The -1 error is simulated by the UI (no one actually produces a -1 status), and only occurs when we get no response from the server which is how GitHub now behaves when we exceed their rate limit.
