If you look here, Francis :


you will find an ISO file for the 2014 release.  Burn this to a DVD (or
use some utility that will allow you to mount ISO files) and you can
then install TeX Live 2014.  You will not be able to update it, of
course, but it may be better than nothing.  Whether there is an archive
of the 2014 release as of its final update, as opposed to its initial
release, I regret I do not know.
