Further to my previous comment, it seems that the download links are still working; my problem was that Zippyshare is now blocked in the UK for some reason. (Seems to be blocked by Zippyshare itself rather than by my ISP.) I managed to download from the given links via a VPN.

@olliebean: thanks, I've updated the entry with a note and contacted @userfriendly who helped us out with the original freeware mirror. I have a copy of the freeware version, but it's very old so hopefully we can find a better one.

I'm getting a "403 Forbidden" error from the download links.
