Wikipedia Download + Tiny Houses
- Did you know that you can download the whole of
Wikipedia? Well, you can. Might come in handy.
general download page:
Static HTML pages download:
... it appears that the .tar file (all stuck together and
compressed) of all of wikipedia is 14 gigabytes. That's
probably near 50 gigs, uncompressed.
PS: found the wiki download idea here:
how to make tiny houses out of pallets:
"Least is Most"
"Why Pallets? It just seems like poetic justice for a house that
questions consumerism be made from the very things that carried
the products to market."
... some great alternatives for the dismal "tent cities"
now springing up across the land. As the collapse leaves
a generation unable to afford ridiculously-expensive
conventional houses, it is even possible that the lead of
"homelessness" (house-lessness) can be transmuted into the
gold of a new and better life in modest, owner-built,
contra-consumeristic/capitalistic homes -- real HOMES, for
a change. We might even come to realize that the occupants
of all those fallaparticle-board McMansions, though they
occupied HOUSES, were in reality HOMELESS, and just
didn't know it. Can you ever be at HOME in something
on which you hold a MORT-gage (unto-death debt contract)?
