[vox-tech] Wierd GPG download question...

Hello all,

I have my GPG key uploaded to pgp.mit.edu, and have had it there since
2002. When I do

	gpg --list-keys doug@dooglio.net

from my local key ring, I get:

	pub  1024R/F30A8A27 2002-07-28 R. Douglas Barbieri (Software Engineer /
	Linux Advocate) <doug@dooglio.net>
	uid                            R. Douglas Barbieri <doug@dooglio.net>
	sub  1024R/E8F7EA5C 2002-07-28

If I look up "doug@dooglio.net" via the web interface at
http://pgp.mit.edu/, I get this:

	pub  1024R/C55B91D4 2002/07/28 R. Douglas Barbieri <doug@dooglio.net>
																 R. Douglas Barbieri (Software Engineer /
																 Linux Advocate) <doug@dooglio.net>

Why are the two id numbers different?


Shouldn't they be the same?

Also, if I perform

	gpg --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys C55B91D4

I get

	gpg: key F30A8A27: "R. Douglas Barbieri (Software Engineer / Linux
	Advocate) <doug@dooglio.net>" not changed
	gpg: Total number processed: 1
	gpg:              unchanged: 1

but if I do this:

	gpg --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys F30A8A27

I get:

	gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found.
	gpg: Total number processed: 0

So, like, what gives? I've even tried re-uploading my key but the MIT server still
thinks it's C55B91D4.
