Wondered this morning why there is no GPG/PGP keysigning scheduled for next week's akademy 2006. Obviously it was forgotten, so after a quick query with the organization team about a free time slot I just posted this to akademy-announce:
What is/Why keysigning? => http://alfie.ist.org/projects/gpg-party/gpg-party If you intend to participate please send a mail with nothing but your KeyID (or KeyIDs) in the body to [email protected] by Thursday, Sep 21st 14:00 GMT. Subject does not matter. If you have more than one key put each KeyID into a line of its own. Make sure your key can be found on hkp://subkeys.pgp.net/. On that Thursday evening you will be able to fetch a text file giving the fingerprint of each participating key. Please check your fingerprint of your key. Also compute the MD5 (and SHA1 hash) of the list and bring a print-out together with some form of government issued ID (passport or similar). If you miss above deadline you can still get your key signed at the party by printing snippet_s_ with the fingerprint of your key to give to all people.
So the magic number mumbling will happen again this year. :-)
