Hey everyone. I was wondering if there was a way to download the whole Wikipedia for offline access. I know that Wikimedia provides HTML dumps of June 2008 (a lot has probably changed since then....) but I want to be able to search through these pages, almost like accessing Wikipedia normally. Images would be a plus, but it seems there are no image snapshots...
I use a Mac, but I can live with a Windows solution via VMWare. I've read that you need to set up a server in order to use Wikipedia offline?? Is that the easiest way?
