DIY HOWTO – PUT Wikipedia on your IPOD!

Here’s an awesome DIY HACK on howto put wikipedia on your ipod!

I’ve commented now and again that I’d be willing to pay upwards of $100 for a handheld version of Wikipedia — one that I can sync via WiFi, then take on the bus and read to my heart’s content. Unfortunately, the market doesn’t seem to be responding to my lone cry… so I wrote a Perl script that loads Wikipedia onto my iPod.

Here a link to database download of Wikipedia for CDs, PSPs, and other gadgets.
