$ gpg -v --recv-key d3498839 gpg: requesting key D3498839 from ... gpg: armor header: Version: 5.0 gpg: armor header: Comment: PGP Key Server 0.9.4 gpg: pub 1024R/D3498839 1997-03-15 Jan "Yenya" Kasprzak <> gpg: key D3498839: unsupported public key algorithm gpg: key D3498839: skipped user ID 'Jan "Yenya" Kasprzak <>' Download appears to work, doesn't look like it belongs to a Felix Karpfen, though.
