This wiki is prepared using Dokuwiki, which is a very simple wiki system which does not require a database or complicated tools. This simplicity means that a student of Epicurus can make a personal duplicate of this wiki for safekeeping or forking and set it up in a new location just by copying and moving the files. A regular backup of all the files for download can be found here.
