Current Plugin Textures?

I was thinking of doing a sample scene to test the new DOF composite, and I realized that Blender doesn’t have any built-in “checkerboard” or “brick” procedural textures. I found a few sites that have plugin textures, like http://www-users.cs.umn.edu/~mein/blender/plugins/texture.html
but many of them (most?) seem to be outdated–they don’t load or they load, but with a garbled and useless interface.

I was wondering what the current best source of cool-o Blender plugin textures is…

On windoze brick, brick1, ceramictiles, r_Bricks, t_bricks and tiles all work.

I’ll go try the Win versions, then. I tried them on OS X, PPC version…
