How many of us could afford the disk space? 30PB in 2016 apparently. I

would be hard. That's 8 years of downloading @ 1Gbps. So I suspect that
none of us has an archive.org mirror.

You can download a copy of Wikipedia and set up a local copy - it's
probably bigger now but when I tried it, it was about 3GB.
