I should have noticed that. Now that I think about it, he *does*
encrypt the stuff to himself (and that makes sense).

Maybe the message could read "gpg: no secret key for decryption
available for "Brian R. Boyce <Veritas@rochester.rr.com>", though I
don't think I would have ``gotten'' it even if it had read that :). I
would be more than happy to add an entry into the FAQ about it
(though, I don't know how frequently it is asked as I only found one
other email that asked the same question).
