    lol, someone should download wikipedia (its not hard, its not that big). And just host it somewhere else until it goes back up.

    I was thinking of something a bit further than that.
    Download ALL of Wikipedia and use Mediawiki to host it all, THEN put advertisements EVERYWHERE
    and use those ads to maintain the fund the server.
    End result.
    BIMMY WAILS IS OBSOLETE NO MOAR PLEASE READ A PERSONAL APPEAL FROM X every fucking fortnight.
    of course Jimmy would probably try to sue on the grounds of copyright if somebody did that, hence proving that BIMMY is full of shit, and is using the same bullshit he supposedly disapproves of.

    There is no copyright. Wikipedia is completely free, they couldn't do anything.

    No, download wikipedia and host it on Wikimedia and ad the shit out of it.
    Wikipedia becomes obsolete, because they can just use a wikipedia that pays for itself.
    and no more "PLEASE READ A PERSONAL APPEAL FROM WIKIPEDIA FOUNDER JIMMY WHALES"

    Actually yes it DOES include pics. Its only like 200 GB of text. I mean jesus, you know how much text 5 TB is? And yeah you need a server and shit, but still the point is, you could make a fortune on adds and the only way jimbo could stop you would be to be a major hypocrite.

    We could all download segments of Wikipedia and add it to the server.
    Man i wish we had the manpower to actually pull this off.
    it would probably reveal that JIMMY!!!! keeps a good deal of the donations.
    as most sites do.

    We can pull this off with some motivation and some support. Just spread the word.
