(Had some very odd message from the MTA... sorry if this is a repost.
Not sure if my original posting made it to the list.)

I think I remember that 2048-bit RSA cards might be available soon...
Was that by PPC Card? Any news on that?
P.S.: The list behaves... er... odd. Sometimes it sets the sender to
gnupg-users-bounces+$user at gnupg.org (where user == emailaddress),
sometimes it's just set to gnupg-users-bounces at gnupg.org. What's that about?
