wiki.mobileread.com on lrf?

It would be nice to see the wiki being translated to a portable device format like lrf for the Sony, PDF, or mobi format for other devices.
I tried downloading the wiki, for offline reading, but it's rather large, and I still have some errors in it.

Maybe the moderators or site owner (or some serious programmers) could offer a solution?

Just wanting to bring the idea out...

I've done the same thing in the past, but it too posed many problems, some of which bugged me so much that I abandoned converting the wiki to ebook. (and given the fact that the mobileread.com wiki can now be surf'ed using my EBW1150 and REB1200 readers )

Now, I am a seasoned website copier and have been able to create ebooks from most large websites I have downloaded EXCEPT wikipedia and mobileread's own wiki. (see a pattern here?) A little help from above would be welcomed...

I too would appreciate such an effort. Periodic updates would be reasonably expected; daily updates would be pushing it, no?

p.s. while attempting this undertaking, would it be possible to re-visit the creation of the Mobipocket Download Guide in formats other than .mobi/.prc, namely .imp or .lrf?

Alex has been overwhelmed at work. That's why he's been absent from the forum for the past 3 weeks. One of the things we're waiting on is a general reorganization of the forum. Impserve/ebookutils is supposed to get its own sub-forum under ebook tools.

I did pester him about it again, earlier today.

@nrapallo

Wow. I hadn't realized that it's been over 2 months since I suggested the idea.

Thanks Nate!

If there is anything I (and others) could do to help spearhead this, please do not hesitate to ask... That's goes for Alexander as well!!!!!

On a related note, I finally got Mobi2IMP to work in linux using wine, so at least that is a starting point. Also, I know Impbuild (part of ebookutils) and my perl scripts (html2imp.pl and opf2imp.pl) work in linux using wine.

I also recently got word2imp.pl to work, so there's a lot of support now for even .doc/.rtf/.txt word documents.

p.s. sorry for hijacking this thread

Maybe I'm missing something but what good is an lrf download guide when the Sony can't connect to the net?

the original topic was not an lrf download guide, but an LRF containing the main pages of the wiki, to read offline.
I have internet on and off, and not always everywhere.

When downloading the wiki.mobileread.com,I have issues with all the PhP files that get downloaded with it, bringing the wiki to nearly 700MB in size.
Probably has to do with the way the wiki is build. I don't have this issue with wikipedia.

No, you are right, but it may have certain advantages according to Elsi's post here.

BTW, the Imp Download Guide makes sense because the readers supporting the .imp format can now "surf" the internet using Impserve.
