More about the National Library

It seems, from the IP addresses recorded, that somebody at the National Library of Wales has been using their computers during working hours to post libellous messages about the ex-IT Manager of Culturenet Cymru, and his girlfriend, on OpenWiki.

Here are three records from OpenWiki:

  • Revision: 44 . . July 19, 2004 08:50 View (diff) . . . . . . 193.61.220.xxx
  • Revision: 41 . . July 15, 2004 09:25 View (diff) . . . . . . 193.61.220.xxx
  • Revision: 36 . . July 7, 2004 17:18 View (diff) . . . . . . 193.61.220.xxx

And you can check the 193.61.220.xxx IP address range here

We are all sure that the Library will pursue an investigation into this. To help out, Watson suggests it's someone who's at his or her desk before 9 and who is smart enough to use OpenWiki but dim enough not to realise they left the Library's IP address behind.
