Tim Dunlop teases his powerful audience:
We use similar tracking software here at Blogocracy to trace the source of comments. Actually, that’s not true. But that sound you just heard was a hundred chins hitting their desks in political party offices across the country.
Lefty bloggers never lack for confidence.
It’s Glowball A-Warmin’!
Hurricanes and all!
I see the bad moon arising.
I see trouble on the way.
I see earthquakes and lightnin.
I see bad times today.
Dont go around tonight,
Well, its bound to take your life,
Theres a bad moon on the rise.
I hear hurricanes ablowing.
I know the end is coming soon.
I fear rivers over flowing.
I hear the voice of rage and ruin.
Hope you got your things together.
Hope you are quite prepared to die.
Looks like were in for nasty weather.One eye is taken for an eye.
Damn cloud cover in Melbourne! Can’t see a thing!Posted by SouthernCrusader on 2007 08 28 at 06:08 AM • permalink
Apologies for diverting attention from the eclipse, but I just love the way he brags about having a hundred readers.

A Texan dude stationed in Germany just made me laugh with a joke about a former Australian opposition leader.

I thought News Ltd had dropped Dunlops; I’m free if they want someone who resembles the Michelin Man.
If Dunlops grip on reality is like his namesakes grip on the bitumen there’s going to be a lot of skidmarks turning up- surely it’s about time an editor tapped him on the shoulder and told him he’s burnt out, the Radical Radial’s sounding more and more like a Bandag’d Phillip Adams by the minute.
Perhaps some acupuncture might help, or at least have him fitted with a tube.
Clouds finally cleared down here, awesome view. Almost like seeing Mars up close.Posted by SouthernCrusader on 2007 08 28 at 08:08 AM • permalink
It was eleven-tenths cloud cover in Perth anyway. So I stayed at the computer and produced this.
And, in the interests of balance, this.Posted by SwinishCapitalist on 2007 08 28 at 08:09 AM • permalink
Dunlop writes: “Wikiscanner is a software program used by the people at Wikipedia to track who is editing the articles on this user-generated, online encyclopaedia.”
Not it’s not. Virgil Griffith at Caltech developed the Wikipedia Edit Scanner without Wikipedia’s knowledge. It’s a web tool that searches the list of edits at Wikipedia and ties them to known IP addresses of groups and organisations.
You can see (and use) it here. It’s great.
Oh, and good to see Dunlop getting around to this about 10 days after the fact.
nic—I am NOT stealing net access from my neighbors. Is it my fault their signal comes floating into my apartment? Hell, I ought to sue them for trespass, littering and exposing me to that nasty electromagnetic radiation….Posted by richard mcenroe on 2007 08 28 at 08:04 PM • permalink
Look at LP. The source IP’s are sociology departments at Dawkins Universities, cafes in Newtown, the odd women’s refuge and those stealing net access from their neighbours, ‘taking it to the man’.
