I found the book's links to sourceforge were broken a long time ago,
and changed the URL I use for it. Since then, I have found my URL
does not work on some days, but will if I wait a few. It is not
working today.

My download scripts re-pack .tar.gz & .tgz as .tar.bz2, so it looks
like I downloaded intermezzo on the 9th and then set my scripts
to automatically pick up new versions the next day.


Wait a few days, then try to find a valid sourceforce ftp url.
I have seen mirrors for sourceforge  - I wish I had kept one of
the URL's.
