I suspect there is some sort of temporary problem involving -findit- and ssc. -findit- is not finding stuff I know is on ssc, but the -ssc- commands seem to work.
I have noticed this behavior on occasion over the past few weeks: I have instructed the students in my Econometrics course to use -findit- for various things, and -- as others have noted recently -- we have found differences between what it lists versus what's available on SSC. In one case, -findit- located an older version of a program that had a more recent version on -ssc-. I had concluded that -findit- was not comprehensive, but (at best) a first step -- is it meant to be a "one-stop" source of internet-available Stata programs?
