EDIT(Xe): M02 11 2020 I fucked it up, this key is broken. Don't bother trying to use it, it won't work. Use age to send messages with the key ssh-ed25519 AAAAC3NzaC1lZDI1NTE5AAAAIPg9gYKVglnO2HQodSJt4z4mNrUSUiyJQ7b+J798bwD9 instead.

This morning I got an encrypted email, and in the process of trying to decrypt it I discovered that I had lost my PGP key. I have no idea how I lost it. As such, I have created a new PGP key and replaced the one on my website with it. I did the replacement in this commit, which you can see is verified with a subkey of my new key.

My new PGP key ID is 803C 935A E118 A224. The key with the ID 799F 9134 8118 1111 should not be used anymore. Here are all the subkey fingerprints:

I don't really know what the proper way is to go about revoking an old PGP key. It probably doesn't help that I don't use PGP very often. I think this is the first encrypted email I've gotten in a year.

Let's hope that I don't lose this key as easily!
