I just thought of something. If for some reason your /own/ key is no longer
trusted, you can make signatures all day but it won't increase validity.

If you do --edit-key A8983CE7, what does its trust say?

Your own keys should normally be trusted ultimately, so if it's not trusted,
just give the --edit-key command "trust" and choose option 5.



I use the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) in combination with Enigmail.
You can send me encrypted mail if you want some privayou cy.
My key is available at http://wwwhome.cs.utwente.nl/~lebbing/pubkey.txt
