It is true, text is a truly god awful medium to communicate in.

We are apparently completely unaware of each other's intentions. I 
honestly thought you thought a disadvantage of using a smartcard is that 
you lose the key once it breaks. It quite surprised me, but I've seen 
smart people have odd misconceptions of things[1], so I simply sought to 
rectify it.

Let's put this whole thing to rest. Nobody thinks you can't have a 
backup of a smartcard key, nobody thinks that a smartcard without a 
backup is a useless thing, and we should all go and read a nice book. 
Perhaps even for the third time, in my case. It's a nice book!
