Very strange - the correct URL is

i.e. without the last 's'

Did you know that, in Chrome, if you modify the URL, and it turns out to 
be a downloadable file - then Chrome downloads it, and then changes the 
visible URL in the address bar back to what it was before !!   So - very

and downloaded in a new Chrome window :-)
