Hi All, I forgot to mention that you should print out your fingerprint
and bring it to the meeting, to make sure that the one I have on file
for you is the correct one.  If you aren't able to pre-register, print
out 15 copies or so to hand out to people at the meeting.  You can get
the fingerprint by typing

gpg --list-secret-keys | grep ^sec
For me, this is 146797fa. Yours will be different.

gpg --fingerprint KEYID

I'm looking forward to seeing everybody there.  We'll have a short talk
on the how and why of PGP, then we'll adjourn to Tech Pizza for dinner.
