APTonCD? anything else like it?

I was going to download and try APTonCD, but it seems as though the author has removed it from sourceforge. I can't find a working link for it anywhere.

Anyone know of anything like it I could try?

I'd like to download all of the updates for my Mint installation at home, then burn a disc and bring it to school with me to install them there. The bandwidth is poor there due to all the students using it. Some other students using Mint were having trouble getting their updates as well. We had to use the Live CD to do the installs at school due to the computers only having CD drives. We need to update to the DVD version. It's about 200 updates at around 100MB. Sitting in class and trying to do it was pointless. It said that it would take 8 hours to download!

EDIT: I found a link that works!
Here's the link (in the second post)

APTonCD is standard in Mint.
