Doing an update and it spits out:
 
Error reading from server. Remote end closed connection [IP: 213.138.101.222 80]
Fetched 2,422 kB in 23s (104 kB/s)
W: GPG error: http://ppa.launchpad.net raring Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 32B18A1260D8DA0B
W: Failed to fetch http://notice.alexx.net/apt/en  Error reading from server. Remote end closed connection [IP: 213.138.101.222 80]

E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.


(happened to be ubuntu 12.Unity_sux).

Google found the solution for me on http://gentoo-blog.de/ubuntu/ubuntu-gpg-error-httpppalaunchpadnet-intrepid-release/  but as it was not the first link I wanted to help bump it up, (if linking to a page still does that) and thank (I'm guessing from whois) Simon Pearce, for having the perfect reminder well laid out; thank you.

gpg --keyserver subkeys.pgp.net --recv 32B18A1260D8DA0B && \
gpg -a --export 32B18A1260D8DA0B | sudo apt-key add -


Not a gpg function that I perform on a weekly basis, so having a note can be helpful.
