        dbb: hi all- I am trying to make a raw dump to load into 
postgres.. I tried I just tried all of  hypercube.telascience.org, 
openstreetmap.org, www.informationfreeway.org  
/api/0.5/map?bbox=1.8,40.5,2.8,42.1 ..none of them responded..
        dbb: is there something basic I am missing here?
        dbb: ohh xapi.openstreetmap.org/api/0.6/ appears to be doing 

balrog-k1n: dbb: in my experience at most one instance of XAPI is 
working at any moment :p
balrog-k1n: and if you request an area with a lot of data it may take 
ages, if you don't need a complicate query it's best to extract from a 
planet dump or country dump
        dbb: balrog-k1n:
        dbb: hi
        dbb: hmmm extract from a country dump?  I am looking for the 
area surrounding Barcelona
        dbb: you are right, it is taking a long time
balrog-k1n: dbb: geofabrik.de has ready to use spain weekly dumps, from 
which you can load a fragment (or all) into the db
        dbb: looking
balrog-k1n: cloudmade.com also has weekly dumps but they're usually a 
week or longer behind
        dbb: ok - we are considering a build process where a 'current' 
OSM dump is taken
balrog-k1n: xapi is updated daily i think, but not always,
balrog-k1n: your best bet is taking a spain dump and updating using the 
diff files
