With 4 gigabyte keychain USB drives being available, you might want to consider circumventing district or school level blocking of Wikipedia by carrying your own personal version of the encyclopedia, selected and edited for in-school use by SOS Children. It's their edit, so you'll have to go by what they consider worth including. Still, it saves a lot of work, and hey, you might even convince the district to allow it. Just as a side note: this download (which is unbearably slow, sorry) consists of content carrying a variety of licenses: the GFDL Wikipedia content is distributed along with some fully copyrighted SOS content. How is this possible? Just be clear about which content is which. The whole issue of mixing open content licenses is easily addressed ion this way - isn't it?
