Watchtower 2011-10: evidently they messed up with history and chronology...again.
History changed from
If Ahasuerus was Xerxes I, the money might have made Haman’s offer more appealing. Xerxes lost a fortune in his disastrous war against the Greeks, evidently before his marriage to Esther.
If Ahasuerus was Xerxes I, the money might have made Haman’s offer more appealing. Xerxes needed a vast store of funds to carry out his long-proposed but ultimately disastrous war against Greece.
Thanks again MMM!

That would be another interesting project: to pull the contents of wol. Judging by the structure, it looks similar, but not exact. I wonder if WT would detect massive traversal hits on their site and shut it down.
I have previously harvested the WOL contents from JWOrg. They didn't shut me down :-)
So I guess harvesting PDF will also not be a problem.
Great Work :) thank you ... I'm interested by the code ... some years ago I've tried to decrypt file ( pub file from WT )to do same work in french.
Another Idea will be comparing between different language ... WT lib and Jw.org ...
and another one will be to compare through time the content of jw.org ... for example I remember a publication with rama singh false citation ... this publication disapear from jw.org ... and on the CD produce after this .. """"correction"""" jw can say "WT never says that your are liars" ... ( in fact I have save the two pdf )
I believe it's not really encrypted but in fact it's a file specific file format some mix of indexed file and compression
It would be interesting to see how much a publication from, say, 1980 has changed since the original version. But that sounds like another big project... ha ha.
I don't see why you couldn't dump the french version of the WT library with the program. I think it would work with any language.
If you have a way to traverse wol.jw.org, and you had it constantly looping through (slowly of course), looking for anything different.. that would neat. I think at that point you would need to introduce a database of change history.
Nice work! Are you able to tell what language the WT Library was written in?
