Dave, Annie, Jonathan,
Mike Salmon here has looked through the log of our ftp site. It seems that
at least 3 people on July 24 and 25 picked up copies of files we'd put on
the CRU site in early 2003 (Feb 24). They were put there for the Hadley Centre
to pick up as we couldn't email such large files at that time. I know we
should have taken them down. See below for the date someone from Canada
did this. This was done between 8 and 9pm UK time on July 25 (Saturday).
The other two were from the US on July 24 and much early on July 25.
Our entire web site is regularly trawled - every few months by people in
eastern Europe (mostly Poland) and Taiwan. Apparently this is quite
The problem I have now is that the file that was accessed contains data
up to the end of 2002. This was for data that went into a publication that
appeared in the Journal of Climate in 2003. Since then we've added
lots more data. So they have a copy of the data from CRUTEM2. They do
not have CRUTEM3.
I'll read through your summary of the meeting yesterday - your email Dave from
16.10 yesterday.

ClimateAudit says: "July 28th, 2009 - Late yesterday (Eastern time), I learned that the
Met Office/CRU had identified the mole."
Looking at the FTP server logs, two addresses fetched newcru* in that time period: = CPE0050bfe94416-CM00195efb6eb0.cpe.net.cable.rogers.com = ppp-209-77-230-64.dsl.chi2ca.pacbell.net
Rogers is a Canadian company, so I assume that's McIntyre
(PacBell is part of AT&T in the US)
Looking through other log entries with that address, he's also interested in this file:
which, ahem, also contains the LUND data! Shall I move that too? It's been there since
The earliest fetch of the full data from that address was:
Sat Jul 25 21:13:01 2009 11 2051007 /data/newcruextusall.dat.Z b _ o a
mozillaatXYZxyzmple.com ftp 0 * c
so he "got the data" at 2009-07-25 2013UTC
