mfslive.org down?

Just curious if anyone has heard a reason why mfslive.org is down and whether it's just temporary or permanent?

As far as I know the only way to reach spike was via the site.

Thumbs down Bad Timing

Having not had the need to employ the resources of MFSLive over the last 10 years has been a good thing. Now, coincident with MFSLive being down my HR10-250 Tivo hard drive has decided to crash and burn. I spent over a half day searching the internet (in vain) for the MFSLive utilities and couldn't find any trace of them beyond the inaccessible MFSlive website, not to mention the inability to access their forums which has proven over the years to be a goldmine for DIYs (along with Weaknees). Given its importance, I find it strange why no one has been able (or is willing) to comment on the current circumstances surrounding their departure. It has negatively affected me in a big way. I hope they return soon.

WinMFS is not available, but the last copy of the website and MFSLive are still available via the wayback machine.

Tried the link. There are no downloads only indexed. The forums don.t have any depth as well. The archive appears to be a higher tier snapshot only. Thanks for the help. I was able to find a Winmfs download and accomplish my mission.

yikes. that's a bummer. I have the mfslive bootable linux that i had grabbed in March of this year, but only burned on a cd/dvd -- i wish i could find the .iso

Just yesterday the hard disk in my circa 2006 toshiba sd-h400 died.
The tools worked great to restore a backup onto a fresh drive.

For which version do you want the .iso?

thanks but i did find it via archive.org as suggested by some other threads here that i found later.

E.g. i went to this version:
https://web.archive.org/web/20141216...g/download.htm
and burrowed down and finally did get to the v1.4 iso

Just to save people time, here's the Wayback page that has the MfsLive v1.4 ISO link:

https://web.archive.org/web/20150218...php?f=9&t=1121

You'll see an "ATTACHMENTS" section with a link called "mfslive-1.4.iso" (9.7 Mib).

Although I'm not sure if the direct link to the ISO changes over time (in which case the above is easiest way to get to it), here's the direct link:

It's a shame the WinMFS download is not accessible in the same way.

Yeah. This other TivoCommunity thread:
http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb...d.php?t=532239

points to a DropBox copy of WinMFS Beta 9.3:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/anlboptp50...a9_3f.zip?dl=0

And this thread:
http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb...3#post10794893

points to a Google Drive copy (not sure which version):
https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B_...Hd3NGZ0RXZqV2M

But it would definitely be more desirable to get it from an archive of the original WinMFS site.

This URL on the Wayback Machine archive of mfslive.org seems to point to winmfs_beta9_3f.zip as well.
