Encyclopodia - the encyclopedia on your iPod

Courtesy of Cory Doctorow at BoingBoing, a way to install Wikipedia on your ipod.
Its free software, there's installation instructions for Windows or Linux & Mac.
Since the Wikipedia is everchanging, I wonder if that would just add to the list of "chores" necessary on a regular basis, with computers. How large a file is that? I was thinking of how frequent the updates would be, if they were "podcast" or updated automagically with RSS, maybe by subject? To minimize the size and maximize the "freshness".
One way to "freeze" wikipedia for whatever reason. Lots of potential, here.

OT: Leo Laporte's podcasts from KFI are delayed by a week, at best, couple weeks, at worst. I sometimes feel that tech news is dated, but Leo proved me wrong. ;)
I was listening to his Jan. 28th podcast today, and I learned something new! Apparently Mandrake has been reborn under the name of Mandriva, that maybe old news for those fans of Mandrake, but just in case, I thought I'd pass it on. :)
