My kind of guy, we need to have more of those things :)
For people loving cool statistics and graphs, check:
Very nice leaf structures there.

Ehm *2* forms? But I only have a passport ;) I hope a dutch passport is
good enough. My picture is in my PGP public key, is that good for the
second photo id?
Btw your key definitely needs some extra signatures, it doesn't show up
as 'trusted yet' in my keyring, which is odd, especially as:
I can help you a teeny weeny bit in resolving that one, though some
people there can help me even more I guess ;)

They went a bit down, it's about 50 EUR now (also a bit thanks to $$$ ->
EUR exchange rates), depending on how many years you buy the cert for.
Check www.freessl.com, still indeed CACert is a nicer way, as it really
is a verified way that the person holding the certificate is the person
they say they are. With SSL, in any form, one still has the problem to
check if 'is P4YPAL.com == PAYPAL.com' ?

On this subject, I have a more interesting question. Anybody traveling
there for the weekend and even more, anybody knows maybe a very
el-cheapo student crashing place to spend the night? :)
