Fixing my GPG

If you do a quick search on some public keyservers like pgp.mit.edu and the likes under the user ID jackyalcine@gmail.com or maybe me@jalcine.me; you’ll find too many keys that are attached to my name. And the sad thing is all of them are keys I did create and upload in hopes that it’d be the last time I’d have to do so.

If you do a quick search on some public keyservers like pgp.mit.edu and the likes under the user ID <a href="mailto:jackyalcine%40gmail.com" class="email-link">jackyalcine&#064;gmail&#046;com</a> or maybe <a href="mailto:me%40jalcine.me" class="email-link">me&#064;jalcine&#046;me</a>; you’ll find too many keys that are attached to my name. And the sad thing is all of them are keys I did create and upload in hopes that it’d be the last time I’d have to do so.

I have a habit of messing up my disk drive about every three months or so and thus, it’s shown to leave its mark on the Interwebs. I’ve finally> worked out a solution to this and you can rest assured that one key will be the one key I’ll use for the rest of time (all things willing). That key is 6E767393. It’ll be available for downloading (the public key) at a short link and I’ll upload it to places.

I know, I’ve polluted keyservers. But if I could work on getting them deleted from the public ones, I’d do it now. The fingerprint for my key is A1A5 A0EB B69F 23AE 67B6 F914 2A23 4ABC 6E76 7393. I learned my lesson. I also learned a lot more about GPG from Alan Eliasen; definitely recommend reading into that.
