Just a little more on Bio2RDF as a shameless promotion...

Bio2RDF is also distributing its software on sourceforge for people to
install locally and get the same functionality as the official site.

If anyone is interested you can find the installation guide at [1],
the software at [2] and the data downloads at [3]. Any suggestions or
bug reports can be made to the bio2rdf mailing list,
bio2rdf@googlegroups.com or at [4].
