When ExampleData is evaluated, Mathematica downloads data from a Wolfram Research Data server. What's the exact domain of this, though? I bet it's something.wolfram.com?

  • $\begingroup$ There is ExampleData Source Information. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @SjoerdC.deVries Honestly? I'd like to block this domain on my system so that I can get to work and not to play with these images ;P I'm serious now. $\endgroup$

Using Charles proxy, I was able see that ExampleData calls pacletserver.wolfram.com.

With Charles recording, I ran

ExampleData[{"Text", "AliceInWonderland"}]

and it gave me this.

Easy work around without needing to figure out URL Remove all symbols used for retrieving example data from the Context


This will permit you still to access the other Paclets data like for example CityData etc..

(PS: stop playing with the images now, hi,hi,hi)
