>> Hey there,
>> I just wanted to give you a little progress report on vido .
>> After the openzim developer-meeting  quite a few changes were made to the
>> format to allow the usage of zim files even on limited devices such as the
>> Ben NanoNote.
>> Last night, after finally finding the right file, I managed to get the full
>> german wikipedia (without images) to run nicely. The file is on the openzim
>> server in their download section.
>> There are quite a few neat functions in vido. Please be patient with it,
>> responses are not instant, but it does what you ask it after 1-2s at the
>> most. There are still a few quirks here and there. Scrolling is not optimal,
>> the way links can be selected deserves another look etc etc. But the
>> foundation works.
>> One word abotu the zim files. Currently there are only german wiki files
>> that have been tested. I will dive into the mechanism of creating other zim
>> files as soon as I get back from FOSDEM. I have been told there is a process
>> for that already, but it is not well documented. We are also in talks with
>> the Wikimedia Foundation and other wikis to get them to publish wiki files
>> If anyones feels like diving into the code to make it better, faster, nicer
>> please go ahead. Just contact me for git access and such.
>> Once again a big yay for the openzim project!
>> Ok, here a small list of what vido can do:
>> - open and display contents of a zim file (on the console):
>> vido [PATH TO FILE]
>> - get a random article (in vido):
>> ctrl + r
>> - search for an article (in vido):
>> ctrl + s
>> - go back to last article (in vido):
>> ctrl + b
>> - go to next article (if you went back before) (in vido):
>> ctrl + f
>> - display your history (in vido):
>> ctrl + h
>> - go to top (in vido):
>> ctrl + t
>> To move through links in an article use TAB. If you only want to scroll use
>> the arrow keys.
>> Note: If you scroll the cursor doesn't move, which means that if you tab
>> after you scrolled for a while the display will go back to the last link you
