Your Worst-Case-Scenario PC Survival Kit

I thought this article was interesting–but especially this part of it:

“The entire body of human knowledge. Say what you will about Wikipedia as a research source–we still wouldn’t want to go into a survival situation without a few copies of, well, everything humanity has ever known. You can download various chunks of Wikipedia from its Database Download page, ranging from the articles only (5GB or so compressed, 25GB uncompressed) to the all-pages, all-revisions archive (31GB compressed, 5TB uncompressed). Unless the world ends over a Wikipedia flame war, you’re probably fine with the articles-only package. Just make sure you have the Edible Plants index page.”

Though I wish MacLeod was my last name, it is not. It's my alter ego. I love finding new and interesting ways to do all sorts of tech "stuff." I thought I'd put this on here for anyone who would find my tech quirks of a kindred spirit. View all posts by kevinbh93
