Bernard/Bob,

Behold:

1. 
http://dbpedia.org/describe/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fdbpedia.org%2Fontology%2F 
-- DBpedia
2. 
http://lod.openlinksw.com/describe/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fdbpedia.org%2Fontology%2F 
-- LOD Cloud Cache .

We've just added the missing triples to the Virtuoso instance Named 
Graphs holding the contents of: 
http://downloads.dbpedia.org/3.6/dbpedia_3.6.owl.bz2.

For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction :-)
