This post has 22 minutes (197 = 206)

Over the last five years, the wikipedia articles on subjects to do with Canadian television have been heavily reworked by the Rogers IPs that we have been following. If you look at the contribution histories of (here) and (here) you'll see many, many edits to articles such as Rick Mercer, the CBC, the List of English programs on the CBC, etc.  

A very popular show with these IPs is This Hour has 22 Minutes, which a handful of the Rogers IPs that we have been tracking have made hundreds of edits to.  

And so, December 5-6, 2003, the edit history shows a dozen or so edits by (here), all reworking the same section.  Then we see this: 
    (diff) 20:53, 6 December 2003
    (diff) 20:52, 6 December 2003
    (diff) 20:51, 6 December 2003
The quick shift from x.x.x.203 to x.x.x.197 and back again all took place within a couple minutes, and again shows how fluid these IPs could be.
