missing link to .mobi file
I'd like to download a e-reader file on my Android tablet. But 
the .mobi file seems to be missing...

On http://dlang.org/download.html, in the "Documentation 
Downloads" section, there's a link called "D Programming Language 
Specification 2.0 ebook". Following the link 
(http://digitalmars.com/d/2.0/dlangspec.mobi) redirects to 
http://dlang.org/dlangspec.mobi, which generates a "404 Not 
Found" error: "The requested URL /dlangspec.mobi was not found on 
this server."

By the way, it looks like I'm not the first person to report this 
problem...

I'm appreciate some help since I get the impression it's not 
particular easy to generate the ebook on my own. Thanks!

I purchased the "D Programming Language Specification" from 
Amazon for $0.99.

http://www.amazon.com/D-Programming-Language-Specification-ebook/dp/B005CCQPKK/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1352911746&sr=1-1&keywords=d+language+specification

I use calibre and it was able to generate a mobi file from that.

Thanks
Dan
