I've taken your suggestion on board and published my key so you can now
verify my signed messages. BTW, I generally use PGP to other tech-heads as
sending signed messages to my (clueless) family and some friends, usually
results in a "what the?!?". Sigh. People think e-mail is like registered
post; secured, insured and guaranteed to arrive. If only!
Now a question for all PGP/GPG + Debian experts: where the hell is gpg-agent
on Debian?? I've finally got this GPG and KDE integration thing happening
and gathering a growing list of keys etc, but I'll be damed if I can get
the gpg-agent working :(
