We are almost 20. Woot woot Stephenwanjau 08:06, 13 July 2012 (CEST)

Yes, working to prepare the usb key :) Kelson 08:21, 13 July 2012 (CEST)
How will it be like? I'm not ready to make holes in walls and fix them with concrete, but if there are easier options I'd be glad to help. Can I just list myself as someone available for download of files and shipping of drives on demand? Nemo 20:08, 19 July 2012 (CEST)
It is about make holes in walls! ;) But if you start a business to ship USB sticks with Wikipedia this is also great. We will start such a biz in France in September. Kelson 20:10, 19 July 2012 (CEST)
Well, not a business, only a small informal thing for Wikimedia friends and such. Not needed if there's an efficient business option I guess. Nemo 20:41, 19 July 2012 (CEST)


Creative Idea, Thks, but I'm just wondering how can we be sure that no one will delete the USB content, I mean the kiwix and Wiki database, and put instead MP3s or viruses or simply delete the whole content ? If there is no protective solution, I think that the best way is to promote public places like libraries just to be sure that some one will periodically verify the USB content. --Helmoony 06:07, 5 August 2012 (CEST)

No way to secure that... Kelson 11:13, 5 August 2012 (CEST)
So we have to save the hole data and go verify it every day/week/month in the USB drive? --Dyolf (talk) 15:56, 21 November 2013 (CET)
I don't want to ask you to check too often how it is. If you go time to time and see if the USB drive is still there, and myabe make an update if a new version of Kiwix or of the ZIM file is available, this is already great. Kelson (talk) 17:49, 21 November 2013 (CET)
