I have a new PGP key…

I have a new PGP key. It can be found in the ‘About’ page of this site.

I took may Mac to the Genius Bar recently and the genius decided I need to do a full clean reinstall. I had done a Time Machine backup before going, so I didn’t think much of it.

Unfortunately, I foolishly neglected to export my private key to a USB before doing the reinstall. I thought I would get my key back by restoring from the backup. Newsflash: that doesn’t work.

So I can’t decrypt anything encrypted to my old key. Apologies for any inconvenience this causes.
