<http://pgp.mit.com/> (NB not gpg) seems to me to be working fine.

and paste in the ascii version (in the "Submit a key" box)
This takes a minute or so to complete.
Then you can see if it has been registered
by entering one's key in the "Extract a key" box.
As far as I can see, you have to preface the key ID with 0x.
The kgpg command to export a key to pgp.mit.edu
did not seem to me to work.
It said "Sending the key" but this seemed to continue indefinitely.
As far as I can see, seahorse is the gnome equivalent of kgpg.
If that is so, it should be mentioned in the wiki page.
