We have seen a significant increase in interest in these devices this
month, having shipped 24 devices so far.
As such we are increasing what we charge to distribute them to 50 USD each
so we are not losing money on each device. Also hopefully this will make it
easier for others to get into distribution.

Dear fellows - I would like to offline host
minimal set of Wiki pages (Wikipedias, Wikispore, Commons)
and minimal set of media (images, video and audio)
that all branch out from single Reasonator
(or Portal.toolforge.org) search...
...and that keep global links beyond 2 degrees
(so that one can use them to continue online).
For now I think of just downloading pages offline
and hosting them as mobile wiki-to-static pages
using wget with manual corrections.
I would love to do this for monuments and
tiny libraries like this https://w.wiki/5QWn
so maybe have library-like single-file wiki
(like https://tiddlywiki.com system)
so that users could connect to it
and live notices.
Anyone has idea if and how to do this better
and package in the most elegant way?
Anyone interested in collaborating?
Best Z. Blace
