tl;dr : Can you please give me the url to the 64 bit Fedora Workstation ISO CD/DVD image? Thanks.

Dear Fedora People,

I would like to download an ISO image to burn to a CD or DVD so that I may install the latest stable release of Fedora Workstation to my Lenovo laptop, currently running Windows 8.1. I do not possess, nor am I interested in buying a USB flash drive for this. I'd rather not use a netinstall image, as the laptop has no usable RJ-45 jack. Can you please give me the url to the 64 bit Fedora Workstation ISO CD/DVD image?

I've been doing this sort of thing since kernel 0.99. I don't know why this has to be so difficult. I appreciate the effort made to modernize the installation process, but I'm an old guy who's eyes are failing and I don't want to read through pages of documentation when all I should need to do is click a download button, burn a disk, and install Linux. It was nice that the server detected my Windows OS and offered some MediaWriter thingy, but... it doesn't really matter what OS I use to download the ISO. When I boot from it, I'll be running Fedora, eh? I'm sorry if I seem cranky. Until I find the right distro for this box, I'm running Windoze! Thanks for your patience. I spent many years in tech support. I hope you can at least get a laugh out of this.

Peace, Tim

Nevermind! I must be so tired. I found the link I needed by clicking 'Get Fedora Workstation' in the page footer, then clicking '64-bit 1.3GB Live image' on the right column under 'Other Downloads'.
