How to Run Timeplot Off-line
Unfortunately, this happens also when you copy the Timeplot source code and serve it off your own web site. It also means that it prevents you from running Timeplot off-line, since even if you copied all the necessary libraries as well, Timeplot will still look for them on the web.
But don't despair: here is how you tell Timeplot to act "local" and avoid looking for stuff on the web. Just append the "?local" string to the "timeplot-api.js" URL that you use to load Timeplot into your page, like this
Timeplot, upon loading, will react to the presence of that "?local" appendix and look for stuff locally.

Here is how you make a local copy of Timeplot that will work in off-line mode
> cd /web/server/root/ > svn co http://simile.mit.edu/repository/timeplot/trunk/src/webapp/api/ timeplot/api/1.0 > svn co http://simile.mit.edu/repository/timeline/trunk/src/webapp/api/ timeline/api-2.0 > svn co http://simile.mit.edu/repository/ajax/trunk/src/webapp/api/ ajax/api-2.0
to your HTML pages and you're done.
WARNING: the Timeplot sources can reside anywhere on your URL space, but Timeplot expects the Timeline and Ajax sources to be mounted in exactly those absolute locations in the URL space of your site.
(Note: this works for the latest trunk of timeplot, but not for the 1.0 branch. The instructions above will fetch the trunk)

simile.mit.edu does not seem to respond anymore, use this instead :
> svn checkout http://simile-widgets.googlecode.com/svn/ajax/tags/latest/src/webapp/api ajax/api > svn checkout http://simile-widgets.googlecode.com/svn/timeline/tags/latest/src/webapp/api/ timeline/api > svn checkout http://simile-widgets.googlecode.com/svn/timeplot/tags/1.1/src/webapp/api timeplot/api
to your HTML code, you do not need the ?local as it looks if you already loaded API and Timeline on your own (what we do here).
