Has anyone been able to use these functions in Mathematica 8? They return nothing for me.

How did you call them? – AndrejaKo Jan 25 '11 at 12:51
Also make sure that M8 is set to connect to Internet. – AndrejaKo Jan 25 '11 at 12:54
It can connect to the Internet. I am calling them like so: ExampleData["Geometry3D"] – atx Jan 25 '11 at 19:32
Maybe you have a firewall problem? I've had that once with our office firewall that used a rare brand of authentication that Mathematica didn't handle (NTLM). I used the CNTLM proxy to let Mathematica talk to this firewall. – Sjoerd C. de Vries May 26 '11 at 6:25
