NameFilter: We have a non-profit project called "MemoryWiki" (the "encyclopedia of memories.") We are thinking about changing the name to "MemoryArchive." Should we? Have a better idea?

I'm looking for a wiki I came across once. It had a button labeled "download entire wiki." One could download the contents of the wiki as static html pages with relative links.
It wasn't Wikipedia. Can you help me find it?

Is anyone using blogs and wikis at work on a corporate intranet? I'd love to hear about how successful they are? What kind of projects do you use them for?

What recommendations do you have for an intranet wiki?
- page-level access controls
- a simple calendar of events (birthdays, travel dates, etc)
- written in PHP
I love MediaWiki, but there is no concept of private pages (there is a plugin script that supports it, but I want something in the core to ease upgrades).
I've also checked out Wackowiki which looks good, but doesn't seem to have any calendar integration.

Are there content management systems or wiki software that are designed to run using ASP and/or focused on .NET functionality and use within a Microsoft/Windows Server environment? If so, what are some examples, reviews and or other information that would be worth knowing? Gracias.

I need a webhost that will give me 100gb of bandwidth and a gig of storage for relatively cheap (budget is about $80/mo USD), and be reliable with goood support. I need mySQL and PHP5. Basically I'll just be running MediaWiki on it, but my site is getting so much traffic it's actually killing my current hosts servers. Who should I use? [more inside]

November is National Novel Writing Month, and I've got 50,000 words to write in 28 days. Isn't there a free web app that would allow me to write anywhere, without having to upload/download any text docs, but simply write/edit online and save changes?

I would like to start a Comic Book Encyclopedia (Which I am calling, for lack of a better name, "Heropedia"), using mediawiki as the engine. I've been a comics fan forever, and a contributor to wikipedia. It's a great project, and I dig it a lot. However, I think branching off into a seperate project would be good for a subject with as much ephemeral information as comic books. My question is, can I use the infromation in Wikipedia pertaining to comic books, as long as the text of my site is licensed under the GNU Free Documentation License? [more inside]

I am looking to incorporate the mediawiki model into a more structured environment. Specifically, users should be able to add "artist" and "album" entities to a music database, and then the content related to these entities should be wikis. These things cannot just be ordinary mediawiki "articles", because I want to make comparisons on the data that requires differentiating between what kind of data it is. Does anyone know of any project that does anything like this, or have any ideas of how to do it with the least amount of coding possible?

A few months ago I came across an animated movie documenting the development of a wiki page. Essentially it was made up of screen grabs generated by going through the edit history of a document. Much googling and MeFi/Boingboing searching hasn't amounted to much. Anyone know where this is? Am I imagining this? Also: Does anyone know of an easy way to create a similar animation with a PMWiki page?

Is there server-side software that that I can log into to give me a directory listing of all the pages and folders on my web server and allow me edit the text and upload binary files? Even better would be to have it allow me to put a little edit link somewhere on the page if it knows via cookies that I'm logged in. I'd like to be able to easily edit my site from anywhere. It's not exactly a wiki because they seem to have their own directory structures, I don't need their special formatting syntax, and it wouldn't be communal. Of course, free is preferable.

A simple Wiki? After reading about Lion Kimbro
and his efforts to document his every thought, I've become interested in the idea of a personal Wiki. But as the Wiki tends to reside in the realm of those a bit more geeky than I, I've had trouble finding something I'm able to install without getting lost in Unix commands. I'm confident enough when it comes to the command line (installed Movable Type without too much trouble) but can't seem to manage a Wiki. Any suggestions?

I'm looking to create a Wiki; actually several. The issue though is this - I don't want to have to do this twice. I tried blogger...and then after about six months I had really seen most of the blogging community/software and saw that Movable Type had the greatest flexibility + future (there was a time where I almost was going to use Greymatter!)
I was hoping with the collective strenght of Mefi - that someone would say:"yeah, this is the best of the bunch...and with a decent future"
