Short answer: it's been a long time, but we may have a project with a French University to get this going. We certainly can grab a few percentage points.

Objet : Re: [Offline-l] 128 Gb versions of IIAB

128Gb is becoming a standard in my world.  

A question to all  --  When is the last time Kiwix or others revisited ways to better compress en:wp?  
I suspect we can do better for large dumps.

Hey All. 

Have started producing 128 Gb versions of Internet-in-a-Box. What they contain is all of English Wikipedia (77 Gb, version from a month ago) plus all of one of Arabic, Spanish, French, or Portuguese WP. French may or may not include pictures. Cost of manufacturing is about 50 USD. Further customization is possible after getting the device. Plan to gradually increase production based on demand.
