Something strange happened to this message - I didn't spell Scott
wrong in the original message. It also seams to have 2 GPG
signatures. In any case, it fails the GPG test.

"Error - signature verification failed; click Pen icon for details"

Then again, the message I was replying to was attached to the wrong
thread. Time to chase the gremlins out again! :)
