URLs are not remapped inline with the text, so if you find a link you
want to click, you need to manually paste it in after the numbered
bit (which represents the timestamp the snapshot was taken.)
I was able to download the disassembled code (text file) this way,
for example. That URL is the latest version I could find; after that
date, they indexed pages which looked like error pages when TIAC
moved to Earthlink (or somesuch.)
Fascinating stuff- someone who truly dug in deep into the ECU code,
and published what he found. We should try and track him down, and
ask permission to put it into the Audifans knowledgebase so it is
more easily discovered and encourages people to hack ECU code more.
I know it prodded me a bit.
Hell, imagine if we could fix some known bugs or enhance the ECUs!
Side update: I IM'd Mark Chang about this and he said "DUDE, you
don't KNOW who RDH is!?" and said he grabbed the guy's website a
while back. Here you go, not sure which is more up-to-date, but
here's another source:
