Because pubring.mix files posted on various web pages are not always current as to
live/dead remailers and/or obsolete keys for live remailers, I wrote a Perl script
to read all pubring.mix files and store the keys according to web-page/remailer
value. Which works great except there's still no way to tell whose page has the
most current key - all I can tell is there are different keys.
So, a question: is there any reason why the Mixmaster "short key" ( the line of
information for a remailer found in a type2.list file) couldn't/shouldn't contain
a creation-date? Like:
aarg remailer@... 475f3f9fe8da22896c10082695a92c2d 2.9beta31 C 2002/01/01
I think this would make keeping one's keys in order much easier. Granted this would
require a change to the mixmaster code itself but I think it would be a small change.
I like it. Describing a spacetime event in this universe requires 4
dimensions. The 4 are length, width, depth, and time.
The Fifth Dimension is a musical group presumably not related to the
The address provides (sort of) the first three. Addition of the time
dimension nails an event. In this case it is the creation of the key.
