This gives a nice little command-driven UI. Use the "adduid" command to add a new UID to your key. My $0.02: I think you should think twice about using the same key for work and personal use. I use two different keys myself. If your key is an "identity," it's probably not a bad thing to have two different identities for your personal and professional life. Analogy: I give out two different sets of business cards* to people, depending on whether they are friends or business contacts. One has my business address, work phone #, company name and title, and company email address. The other has my home address and phone #, and personal email address. They represent two "identities." Anyways, that's my opinion. ~Mr. Bad * Richard Stallman calls personal ones "pleasure cards." :-) - -- ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Mr. Bad <mr.bad@pigdog.org> Pigdog Journal | http://pigdog.org/ | RoR - Alucard ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.0.1 (GNU/Linux) Comment: For info see http://www.gnupg.org iD8DBQE4ikfobZezvPSYodkRAgdYAJ9hNzGeNJcXDTY8eEXps187/oGq2wCgjTEc QPu2hACFwvmKuyWbbFXhh0Y= =GPaR -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
