Have you used or downloaded AvantSlash 3.0 or 3.1?

My (old) sysadmin in what could only be described as a hissy fit deleted my entire account one friday night. Along with all my emails and other stuff went the only copy I had of AvantSlash. This is rather unfortunate, since I maintain it! Can you help me find a copy of v3.0 or 3.1?

Ignoring the obvious (should backup more often, don't go with a sysadmin who suffers from this kind of thing) I'm having terrible problems actually finding the code. I've searched Google, searched p2p (v2.28 only), posted requests on Slashdot, posted requests on forums where they've asked about it and even tried to contact the owner of the glowing comment on the freshmeat page but nothing.

Is all hope lost? Can you help or can you advise on where I should be looking?

EDIT: I've enabled comments here -- I forgot that MetaFilter accounts are not easily available.

What would the original filename have been? avantslash-0.3.1.tgz? (No, I don't have that, I just made the name up).

There are filenames on the freshmeat page (linked in the middle of the quote)

Bummer for him. (1)

Looks like their site is down for some reason. Perhaps someone included this in a distribution of Linux somewhere. The latest version that I saw was 2.26 in Slackware 10.1.

Hope he gets it back!
