Has anyone thought of creating a module for the 1911 Encyclopedia Britannica?

Wikipedia already started doing something with it, and the texts can be found on project gutenberg http://www.gutenberg.../wiki/Main_Page

It would definitely be quite a project but I was just curious if its been started or anything

Hi,

Welcome to the BibleSupport. I don't know of anyone working on it. I'm not sure of the value of this work in e-Sword format, given other projects that have a more clear-cut use.

When I looked into creating it a few years ago, the big obstacle was the size. Too big for easy downloading, and a significant negative impact on e-Sword performance.

On both points I'm very prone to agree, and moreover I tend to think that because its from that time, much of the stuff in it would be well and truly out of date and irrelevant.

Blessings,
Stephen (Php 1:21).
