Get yourself a locally-accessible Wiki. Try:

It is really, really easy. Go to the page below, download
the v1.0, unzip, double click on the .exe, then turn your
browser to http://localhost. That's all there is to it.

It runs on port 80 by default, so you open your
computer up to script kiddies. But you only need to
run it while using your Wiki, I don't think it does
anything besides Wiki, and you see requests in
the console window, so it seems fairly safe.
Certainly moreso than Microsoft's PWS.
