The biggest problem is that I have a public key that was published back 
about pgp-262 or 262a time, 20 years back, so its out there "someplace", 
so I expect I should try to locate it and remove it from view/use before 
I try to setup another. Unforch ther drive in the amiga died, and took 
the keys with it to that great pasture that shitty drives goto when they 
fail.

I don't recall if I set an expire on it or not. Or without the shorter ID 
string, how to convince the key-servers its mine, so its ok to nuke that 
puppy.

Sigh...  Don't get old, deloptes, its not all the fun its cracked up to 
be.
