Default Jim_H is a celebrity

This link was posted in the 'new visitor' thread. It is a tutorial on the 928 and at the end notes what celebrities have been associated with the car. Look who's included!

"Miscellaneous

It can be seen in many movies, including Scarface, Risky Business, Weird Science, Beetlejuice, Thinner, Nutty Professor and Cannonball Run. There is an AC/DC video "Let There Be Rock" with the band racing a biplane in a then-new 1980 928, and more recently a white 928 appears in the opening sequence of Britney Spears' My Prerogative video.

There are many famous celebrities associated with the 928, including Jim_H, Stanley Kubrick, Steven Spielberg, Eddie Murphy, David Letterman, and MC Hammer.

On August 7th, 1986, the Porsche 928 was graced with the distinction of being the World's Fastest Production Car, earning the Land Speed Record at the Bonneville Salt Flats."

Check out the editing history at the top of the page. Fame is overrated, but that opinion is only held by those who aren't.

Interesting - the IP address of the person making the change was 68.101.90.157 - a simple Whois query returns the following:

Search results for: 68.101.90.157

*** Communications Inc. AT-RDC-68-101-64-0 (NET-68-101-64-0-1)
68.101.64.0 - 68.101.95.255
*** Communications Inc. ***-ATLANTA-2 (NET-68-96-0-0-1)
68.96.0.0 - 68.111.255.255

# ARIN WHOIS database, last updated 2005-05-16 19:10
# Enter ? for additional hints on searching ARIN's WHOIS database

The plot thickens Anyone from the Atlanta area using *** Communications want to fess up? Not that Jim_H isn't famous, just curious who thinks so highly of him

I have no idea what you did but did the address lead you to Atlanta? I would like to know who this fine judge of character is.

Hey Jim - I just used an internet locater service called WHOIS - it tells me that the IP address used by whoever made the edit to Wikipedia is controlled by *** Communications from their Atlanta Internet access point - of course, that could mean anywhere in the southeast, and my tech skills fail at that point Oh well, just a curiosity...
