Oops, I accidently downloaded all of Wikipedia
It happened a few hours ago and now I have only 3Gb usage allowance for the rest of this month. I was going to download the compressed 6Gb file from an Internet cafe, started the download as a test using my Next G stick but then got distracted by something and forgot to stop it.

Well I hope it works, yet to test it out in a browsable form.

I am using the one where it says "This is probably the one you want. WARNING: 6.07 GB"

I decompressed it to a 27Gb xml file and now a software called Wikitaxi is creating a database file.

Is that Internet cafe located in Amsterdam? That may explain the distraction you experienced.

WikiTaxi Importer is inserting pages at the rate of around 2500 per second and it looks like the whole process will take one hour.

Gosh this is exciting.

Is it 100% searchable offline? Also, any idea what format the database will be viewable in? Or does it have an internal reader/viewer?

Keep us updated! peace

Imagine the size of the whole internet.
Imagine by the time you downloaded it there would be another equal or bigger sized new amount of internet to download.

Wikitaxi importer ended up creating over 10 million Wiki pages on my HDD.

Using Wikitaxi to browse it now. It works and it's fast too!

Re: Oops, I accidently downloaded all of Wikipedia
That is actually pretty neat OP.. didn't know that you could download Wikipedia.

The only thing with Wikipedia is that it can be edited by anyone, you, me, my four year old son, etc.

Not everything posted there is 100% factual. Just be aware of that.

Does somebody know what may be the reason my downloaded html mirror image of Wikipedia is not working ?

I have a 40GB file called wikipedia-en-html.tgz that unpacks to only 5 GB .. but without errors.

That doesn't make sense. From where did you download the tgz file from? What did you use to unpack it with?
