    Thank you Bro for the db! But it wil be much helpfull if the db is in XML format or CSV so that not only ruby but other languages can also easily support it. though php can work with sqlite but XML format or CSV will be more easy to process for others! That download link isn’t working so downloaded it through GitHub. If you have updated DB then please share it!
