Pauline Rogers <Pauline.Rogers@cancer.org.uk> knows that an update to 
Stata's executable and ado-files was made available yesterday, 9sep2003, 
but,

The problem is on Pauline's end and, if she will just be patient, it will
resolve itself.  In order to minimize bandwidth charges for crossing the
Atlantic, many U.K. institutions cache web sites.  What's happening is that
Stata is calling out for information from www.stata.com, and that rather than
getting information directly from here in the U.S., Stata is getting back
informtion that was cached by her institution a day or so before.  Where
Pauline is, it looks like Stata has not yet been updated.

The caching software is usually set to refresh its buffers every few 
days, so my advice to Pauline is to type -update query- every so often.
Eventually, the update will appear.
