The Pseudodictionary, Dict-ified

I was so smitten with the Pseudodictionary, the first time I saw it, that I fired off an email to the creators asking if there was a master data-file I could use to build a database to be read by a Dict server. I don't run a public server so I've posted the database and index files as a tarball. I will leave setting up and running a dictd server as an exercise to the reader. Because the pseudodictionary contains both words and phrases, it's not a perfect fit for dict. Results for phrases are sometimes returned as entries for each word or simply aren't discovered. I'm not very fluent in the ways of the dict server so if I'm missing something here, please let me know. On the other hand, if the Jargon File suffers from the same problem, for phrases like "hack value", I figure I can live with it too. For my next trick, I'm going to sleep. Oh boy, sleep! That's where I'm a viking...
