Hello 194.79.76.18!


One of the fun things I managed to add to Yaki recently is an XMPP bot that monitors activity based on keywords and IP addresses and IMs me stuff.

One of the internal stats it pays attention to are “trigger words” in searches, because I like to know when people search my site for a few topics. Then it latches on to the requesting IP address for a bit and lets me know all the search terms entered.

Well, today the lucky winner was someone over at the competition who was apparently looking for this chart on mobile broadband.

As you can see, they took a while to get to it (the bot’s attention span is roughly half an hour):

The real fun bit is that, given their final query, I don’t think they actually found it.

You can check the address on WHOIS for kicks (full disclosure: I used to work there back when they had fewer AS numbers, but have been keeping track).

In a way, it’s gratifying to see that they would bother searching my site for this rather than visit the local regulator’s – which is where I got the info in the first place.
