Any direct download link for the Kingston update known?

The simple binary patch to the Intel update tool for bypassing the model string check is available on various web forums, e.g. http://www.overclock.net/ssd/656984-how-get-your-kingston-40gb-ssd.html but the file hosting services used for these things are very ephemeral and so I don't know of any permanent URL, which is why I thought the best advice was to just google for it.
