The message that was really ticking me off was:

> [10/22/97 23:48:21 GMT] The proxy says: "It's time to move to a longer
                           key length! [slacker]"

Especially because it is followed by:

I guess bovine.net is getting *lots* of hits now, since *lots* of people
are hard-coding it. Good luck getting them to change it back.
