Please continue... how?
"User Attribute" comes to mind, but I can not find the specification.
>>Some things I would like to publish are:
>> - The 'usual' stuff - aka ICQ servers or company vCards
>> - Whether I prefer to receive encrypted mail or not.
>> - Whether I prefer to receive signed mail or not.
>> - How I want to be send signatures - MIME / inline.
>> - URL to my public key (to remove refresh load from keyservers)
> I still don't see the point
The points are:
- Provide some information about me - Why do people provide extensive
info at ICQ? This is the same.
- I do not want to annoy people and I do not want people to annoy me.
Telling someone whether you like signed/encrypted messages helps.
- The same holds for your preference of format.
- Keyservers are not-profit - every bit of bandwidth we can save them
> A better idea would be to simply put all the details you want on Biglumber
I already have Biglumber account, but I just can not enter all the suff
above. And even if there was a giant site where I could enter all I
wanted, I would still prefer to have everything saved on one place, in
one public key. (But if there is such site, let me know !!! :-) )
