Running locally on the server (no network
delays), the above wget command took about 2 hours to complete!

The tarball turns out to be 197.7 Mbytes - about a 40 minute
download at 80 KB/sec. You can download it here:


 % mkdir snapshot
 % cd snapshot
 % tar xzf axiom-snapshot.tar.gz

to expand the archive into a convenient directory, e.g. snapshot

Then use a browser to access the local file:


Most of the links have been converted to local links. The
exceptions are things that produce dynamic results such as
search, edit, etc. These still link to the Axiom Wiki.

Please let me know if you think this might be useful. If it
is, then we can provide a link on the wiki to download it
and I can also arrange to have it updated once per week.
