Are you using euro80.v27.distributed.net as your keyserver?  If so, it
is down and has been for 12+ hours.  I noticed the same and changed to
us80.  Check out http://www.distributed.net/rc5/proxyinfo.html for the
proxy status.  Normally the keyserver proxy1.mz.rp.de...  is the euro80

NB Kahn, C J Hughes and G H Hughes were appointed joint administrators on 29
October 1998.  The affairs, business and property of the company are being managed
by the administrators.  The administrators act as agent of the company and without
personal liability.  For the avoidance of doubt the business of Ionica (1998) Limited,
a wholly owned subsidiary of Ionica plc has been transferred back to Ionica plc.
