The Inklings (or 78 = 81)

The article on theologian C.S. Lewis shows another interesting example of IP-shifting. Three edits were made to the external links section within a few minutes of one another.  (For the edit history, see here)

Again, this is the same user, whose IP seems to have changed while they were surfing.  Apparently, however, x.x.x.78 was only held for a few minutes., because a few minutes later x.x.x.81 reappears at the article on the writer Charles Williams, adding that C.S. Lewis was one of Williams friends.  The edit can be seen here:

(Williams, Lewis, and J.R.R. Tolkien were three members of the informal literary society called the 'Inklings', which met regularly in the famous Oxford pub, the Eagle and child.)
