Well, Google's translate service is an example of exactly what
*trying* to block, people hotloading Wikipedia for fun and profit.
am sure that the intentions are good for what they are doing, people
just want to protect wikipedia (including me). I am most interested in
learning about how to make a local searchable backup of the full
wikipedia, it seems a bit tricky with the xml format. I plan on making
a install of apache/lucene/mysql/php/mediawiki and see how it works! :)
ps. there are a lot of question marks in my posts but I am not putting most of them there,
all my real questions have been kindly answered so far thanks!
