Don't know....but the expiry date of the key imported is 2/21/2010 so I
think it is the latest incantation.

Ahhh...digital spam is nothing.  My anti-spam prevents 99% of the spam
from reaching my inbox.  Try living in Taiwan....  Every day you come
hope to a mailbox stuffed with flyers of one type or another.  Along
with the PITA of having to sort through the junk to find the important
junk (a.k.a. bills) you then have to dispose of the junk and you come to
realize all of the paper being wasted.   I can control the digital
spam....nothing stops the physical spam.  :-(
