I managed to find the github page, but that's about it. All the links you posted are not pointing anywhere. Secondly, I don't think that is a free e-book. It's being sold actively.

@Dani. Just my opinion. One of the usual forum moderator tools is to lock old posts. This fixes the necropost issue over time as moderators can lock or close an old discussion.

What rproffitt said. In addition, FYI, pen/thumb drives (and sd cards) have a limited number of write cycles for each sector (512+ bytes). As that number is approached, the write time slows down, and then that sector is no longer accessible. There is more recent software that will attemp to … Reply by rubberman
