1. Yes, I have created a several key signatures in the
process and testing gnupg and following the
instructions on the manual. I'm not sure though if
simply deleting them off from my home directory would
solve the problem.
2. How do I put my key on a keyserver like that of
verisign or other key servers out there?
3. This is somewhat related to number 2, from school,
our instructor mentioned that we can setup to be our
own private key server, hosting our own public keys,
just like what you have right now. But we never got to
do this exercise in the first place.
Is this true? If so, can I safely do this setup and
coincide with my apache server project of mine which
is for hosting my personal/family site? The thing is,
we were strongly told from school that limiting
services running on your host box would definitely
limit the chances of getting compromised.
Do I have to allocate one box for this purpose or just
simply pasting my public keys on a public key server
would do the job? Or just sign up for one?

4. And finally, I tried doing this command from the
$ gpg -armor --export servie_tech at yahoo.com. Then I
copy paste on this email message which gave me a
public key block.
Is this the right way to do this? Or is there another
way to do this?

Thanks again to all of you guys in this group. You
definitely have been very helpful and have made my
intended transition to linux a lot easier.
My worries now would be how to enable my created labs
web cam on linux which is of course not part of the
groups topic. Nevertheless, again thanks a lot guys!
This user group is simply one of the best!!!
