I searched for my interval package

and got


there I clicked the 'CTAN path'

and was sent to


which allows me to download interval.sty via


Perhaps mirrors.ctan.org sent you to a bad mirror?

Subject: [texhax] What has happened to ctan?

I just tried to use ctan to download a package.  I have done this many
times in the past.  It has a spiffy new interface that looks great.  I
found the package I was looking for immediately.  One problem: although I
approached it in several ways, but not one offered any way to download it.
What good is knowing it exists if you can't get it?
