Mathworld Utility Packages

Can someone please direct me to an updated source of Eric Weisstein's Mathworld Utility Packages that allows one to copy and run Mathworld notebooks in a newly set up Mathematica 9 environment (with standard setup configuration chosen).

Online documentation dates back to Mathematica 6 from 2007.

"For a list of Eric's math packages that may be needed to evaluate this notebook, see Mathematica Information Center's MathSource item 4775. A list of Eric's utility packages that may be needed to evaluate this notebook may be downloaded from MathSource item 5087".

Point to: (994.8 KB) - Eric Weisstein's MathWorld Packages 2007-10-10 [for Mathematica 6.0]

But unzipping and inserting them per:

"To use these packages in Mathematica, place them in a folder called MathWorld inside your $UserAddOnsDirectory/Applications directory (or any other directory on your $Path)".

Then evaluating:


Gives output:

SetDelayed::write: Tag Gudermannian in MakeBoxes[Gudermannian[z_],TraditionalForm] is Protected. >>
SetDelayed::write: Tag Haversine in MakeBoxes[Haversine[z_],TraditionalForm] is Protected. >>
SetDelayed::write: Tag InverseGudermannian in MakeBoxes[InverseGudermannian[z_],TraditionalForm] is Protected. >>
General::stop: Further output of SetDelayed::write will be suppressed during this calculation. >>

MathWorld`SpecialFunctions` is not loaded.
