Hi everyone. We need your help again.
We finally have a working mirror for generating the static html version of
ESWIKI we need for Cd-Pedia using DumpHTML extension.
But it seems that the process will take about 3000 hours of processing in
our little sempron server (4 months!).
How many time could it take in Wikimedia's servers?
(This is intentional top-posting to update quickly the situation)
