[Nottingham] GPG Keys....

That's half the problem, when I use the server you just gave me I get
the following:

gpg: sending key 00273238 to hkp server subkeys.pgp.net
gpgkeys: HTTP post error 7: couldn't connect to host
gpg: keyserver internal error
gpg: keyserver send failed: keyserver error

Could it be my network getting in the way? I know things like google
talk don't work here...

As for it's application, I was planning to use it for e-mail primarily,
possibly for file uploads, but I don't do that so much now...
