Mainly on searching, while the results may not be more than 
what you get via links that others have posted before:

Googling on a site often is better than the site's own search, 

    times math site:www.ctan.org

on www.google.com. You find more about Michael Spivak's


outside CTAN. I remember this because of his typewriter 
volumes on differential geometry (amounting to something 
like an orange box) and together with a paper of his where 
he was near to regret having spent so many years with 
developing MathTime.

CTAN doesn't have a package MathTime, but there are some
directories named mathtime and packages mathtime-ltx and 
mathtime-metrics, actually the CTAN search for "mathtime" 
presents them.

When you know a single package that roughly fits your needs, 
such as newtx, you get a larger collection via the CTAN 
topics it belongs to, here


MathTime belongs to


which also has


a shame that the CTAN search has not shown this.

The previous ideas were inspired by other postings which 
did not exactly point to Times New Roman, for the latter 

    times new roman site:www.ctan.org

on www.google.com -- but this seems to be especially bad.
