Did you ever want to take Wikipedia with you while you are offline? Call on WikiTaxi: It is a portable application that delivers the Wikipedia of your choice to wherever you go.
WikiTaxi enables you to read, search, and browse Wikipedia offline. No Internet connection is needed, all pages are stored in a WikiTaxi database. Because Wikipedia is constantly growing, WikiTaxi uses compression to make sure that the database stays reasonably small. The huge English Wikipedia easily fits on a 8 GB memory stick.

Yesterday, I downloaded WikiTaxi. It's a great little application which allows you to download a current snapshot of Wikipedia (sans images) to your PC for local access. I now have a local Wikipedia installed on my laptop, and that's pretty cool.
