Good stuff on GPG keys. 
 
#geekporn  Today it made "click" in my head. I finally understood the use of subkeys in GPG. The genius of it! You can safely delete the master key from your keyring you use on your machines after storing it ONLY offline and carry ONLY the subkeys in your keyring on machines or mobile phones that you use to encrypt/decrypt/sign. So should your keys become compromised, you can revoke the subkeys, take out your masterkey on a truly safe machine and generate a new set of subkeys for encryption and signing.

And these new subkeys are still identified via the same keyID as that comes from the masterkey. So you can keep the masterkey longterm and swap out the subkeys every year or whenever you think they are compromised.

Note howver that you need the master key for keysigning. So you might want to be able to do that every now and then.

If there's anything the world doesn't have enough of, it's init systems. No wait, that's not right. Podcasts. The world doesn't have enough podcasts.

"Upstream," the podcast, is a little project several of us on the Open Source and Standards team have been talking about doing for a while, and I'm pleased to push the first episode into the wild. Thanks much to Leslie Hawthorn for being the first victim, er guest, and to Rich Bowen for help with editing this episode.

Much more to come, and if you have suggestions for more guests, want to be on the show, or have comments about this episode, please let me know. Enjoy!

Looking good! Worth doing if you want a little more desktop space. Or hold out for the higher-end Dells that are coming soon.

Interested in cloud-ready storage? You might want to check this Hangout, er, out. 
 
Dan Mons came across GlusterFS at his job with Cutting Edge, a VFX company. He needed lots of storage space that was available to many different users - and he needed it to be able to expand as he needed. That it was free and ran on commodity systems was a big plus.

Come join us as we learn from Dan and pepper him with lots of questions. We'll be at a special time this week because Dan is in Oz - 5pm Pacific US/8pm Eastern US/01:00 GMT

Follow along on Youtube (link forthcoming) and ask questions in #gluster-meeting on the Freenode IRC network (irc.freenode.net or irc.gnu.org, among others).
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Josephus Ant. The live video broadcast will begin soon.
