learning the hard way

Amongst the swag scored at OSCon was a 64mb usb stick.

I've never bothered owning one of these, so I was a little overexcited. Using my laptop more often has made me wish for an easier way to carry pgp/ssh/vpncert keys around with me, so I copied all of my shit over to the thing during one of the last presentations of the day.

Went out to Rock Bottom, drank some beer, and realized that I couldn't feel it anymore in my pocket. That's right, sometime after copying all of my private keys to this fucking thing, the usb stick fell through a HOLE in my pocket, and is now god knows where.

I'm really *extremely* careful about my priv keys. My pgp key was from 1998. :( I just spent the better part of the evening distributing revocations for my pgp stuff, changing authkeys files on the vast array of machines I have access on, and revoked the vpn cert for internal Spime stuff.

On the plus side... openvpn makes revoking access pretty easy, and my keys were so damn old, I guess it was about time to do this anyway. I'm pissed I don't have the stick anymore, though. :( No more ssh rsa key! 4096 bit pgp key! .... eh fuck, who am I kidding, this blows. I'm pretty mad at myself.
