If you go here :

213.251.145.96...

You will see that along the side there are 842 cables released - then if you go here :

213.251.145.96...

You will see it's back down to 667.

What? So the guts of 200 cables got released... but I can't see them on the release date of today?

Thoughts anyone?

EDIT : Investigation over thanks to TheDeader.

I can't figure out how to navigate that site to save my life! It's confusing. How do you just search a topic or cant you?

Hmm, first link is at 842 for me.


"Currently released so far... 842 / 251,287"

Strange.

As a lot of sites an server that host the wikileaks data are under attack + the fact that the releases are mostly automated can lead to errors.

My content-mirror updated succesfully.
Some say www.wikileaks.nl is the most up to date source.

If you want to save / mirror the wikileaks website in case it's shut down here's a linux command that will help you:

wget -nH --convert-links --no-parent -a /var/log/wgetwiki.log -P /var/www/ -mirror www.wikileaks.nl

(in crontab -e : 0 * * * * /usr/bin/wget -nH --convert-links --no-parent -a /var/log/wgetwiki.log -P /var/www/ -mirror www.wikileaks.nl
Updates every hour - /var/log/wgetwiki.log & /var/www/ have to be edited to your folder structure)


There's nothing wierd in this. Just some bugs / errors that happen in webdev/automated publishings


*EDIT: hit CTRL + F5 (instead of just F5) in your browser, this will clear the cache an refresh the page properly

As a side note though - How come yesterday we were at 683 cables - now today we are at 842 - and on the release date of today - there is definitely not 159 cables released today.

EDIT: In fact, there are only 21 cables released under 2010/12/04 - a far cry from 159. What's going on?

Question..
Who got these files ? where are they released from ?
why dont they just release all 250.000 docs.. and why are people calling the data "calbes" ?

The source who got the files remains a topic of debate - although Mr Bradley Manning has been in the spotlight.

They are being released in the media, NYTimes, Guardian and Der Spiegel to name a few. - Also being released in the many Wikileaks sites and mirrors on the net.

They don't want to release all the documents at once as "it will not do the material justice" - They want it all slowly released so the public can digest it all easier.

Calbes is a typo of "Cables" - They're just called "diplomatic cables". Simple as that.

1- I don't know, the us govt says some Manning dude.
2- SIPRNET, the network used by diplomatic agents.
3- Because it'd be impossible to sort out 250000 at once.
4- Because they are all cables from/to embassies and consulates around the globe.
