  • anon

    tweet about anonymous Wikipedia edits from particular IP address ranges

    Project mention: Show HN: Explore Wikipedia edits made by institutions, companies and governments | | 2022-12-03

    There was fun time when Ed Summers made a tool to monitor Wikipedia edits from some IPs pool realtime, and it turned into worldwide effort with Twitter bots monitoring many governments and big corporations, highlighting a lot of cringe edits and poor attempts to remove some info from Wikipedia. Many bots are still active, you can find source code and list of bots here

    Also there is analysis of old edits (2002-2014) using IP ranges collected for bots, source code:

    * - why it's hard

    * - an entire article about parsing page TITLES

    * - a paper published about a wikitext parser

  • kiwix-desktop

    Kiwix for Windows and GNU/Linux desktops

    Project mention: Search a document/file on Macbook M1? | /r/Kiwix | 2023-05-20

    If it's Kiwix Desktop, then I'm afraid I can't test that, as I don't have a physical Mac, and Browser Stack doesn't allow me to install executables. However, it might be worth raising an issue here.

    I'm writing a similar class (code here) and I've played around with using way smaller methods, and class variables to help keep from passing around a ton of parameters. Do you think I'm on the right track with the smaller methods + more class variables?
