The mystery of a missing dataset

An interesting blog post from computer scientist and engineer David Rosenthal details his stepdaughter's quest to locate a dataset which she had downloaded in 2011, but which is now unavailable.

Although this was an important study in her field (sustainability and life cycle analysis) the original link to download the data is broken  and there appear to be no archived versions of the dataset.
