now I'll use the inline format. If you can now verify my signature, this still
could be the same bug (or whatever it is...).
I use GnuPG (GPG) for E-Mail encryption and signing. If you want some privacy,
my public key ID is 2F9D4F14. The file "singature.asc" this message includes
contains a cryptographic signature which enables you to verify this E-Mail
really was written by me.
