I've updated http://shinobi.dempsky.org/~matthew/adgregate.html to
handle the new validation mechanism.

It's basically the same as before, except every 5 minutes (aligned
with the hour) the (single, global) validation string changes.  You
can easily retrieve the current one using curl:

$ curl -e https://secure.adgregate.com/vid_m_widget.swf \
>     https://secure.adgregate.com/validatewidget.aspx?wid=1

I'll continue updating the above URL as they (hopefully) further
revise the scheme, but I'm going to refrain from spamming BugTraq
about it.
