By the time this message had arrived they were both there - but I had 
uploaded the ascii key by then too!

Alright for some eh?

I got the signing-party package last night (as the trilug site was 
offline), so I could use the gpg-key2ps script. I have got the same 
script from the trilug site just now. Either way, if I issue:

gpg-key2ps -p A4 "Christopher Aitken" > key.ps

I get a single entry in the top left corner of a landscape piece of A4 
(or in my case, verticaly upwards from the bottom left of a portrait 
piece of A4).

gv key.ps gives me the following error (as does issuing: ps2pdf13 key.ps):

Any ideas?
