...I can't get anything from the blacktree.com domain to work. I can't get onto www.blacktree.com, and my existing QS install can't update itself or add plug-ins. Did I miss something (like a website move) or is there something screwed up on my end? Another one of my friends couldn't access it either.

If you've been trying to download and install Quicksilver in order to get Leopard up to snuff, you've probably noticed that the Quicksilver site is down. In fact, it's been down for quite a few days now. Fear not, Quicksilver lovers, as the application's developer contacted us to let us know that the last version we posted about included a bug that caused some Quicksilver installations to ping for updates like crazy, which brought down the homepage. That, consequently, has meant no one has been able to download Quicksilver or any Quicksilver plugins for a few days. So, whether you want to install Quicksilver fresh or you've already got it installed, go grab the latest version from the link below (it's a direct link) and help put out the fire for the folks who who so kindly bring us Quicksilver free of charge.

Every site I find points to the same broken link to download quicksilver.

http://blacktree.meadgroup.com/quicksilver/application/

All of these point to this site above.

So where do people don'tload the latest quicksilver goodness these days?

Even the quicksilver google project doesn't seem to have any downloads.

Thanks.

That is the second link that I posted and yet when I clicked on it today it downloads it from macupdate instead of from the black<something> site that didn't work. Very odd. Thanks for making me check again.
