ftp://parcftp.xerox.com/pub/MOO/html/ProgrammersManual_toc.html has the

flake.org moved recently and it might still not be cached correctly in your

You can find the upgrading LambdaCore document at

Here are some patches I've used and found useful:
The DSA extensions at ftp://parcftp.xerox.com/pub/MOO/contrib/server-add-ons/
The File Utilites Patch at
Martian's Extension Pack at http://midgard.solgate.com/docs/ext-martian.c
Richelieu's patch archive at ftp://ftp.crl.com/users/ro/riche/MOO/patches/
