Get Kindle 1 update 1.2?

I'm neither in nor from the US and can't get the firmware update 1.2. When I try to download it from http://www.amazon.com/update_kindle.bin I get the message "We're sorry, this title is not currently available for download." - I actually remember trying to somehow get around this ages ago, but I still have my Kindle on firmware 1.1 and I thought it might be a good idea to finally try to update it again..
Could someone, who's allowed to access this file by amazon, download it for me and send it to me by uploading it to e.g. ifile.it?

Thanks to a helpful soul.

I uploaded the file that link gave me.
I put it into my dropbox account:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/2434496/Update_kindle_1.2.bin

Let me know when you have it so I can remove it.
good luck on the update.

thx

oops.. sorry, didn't know others would need it. I reuploaded it.

I'm not sure how much bandwidth dropbox allows me, but I'll leave it up there for a couple of weeks.

You're welcome.

I went ahead and uploaded it to my own hosting account. For anybody else that wants the Kindle 1.2 update, use this link:
