	When you check in for NANOG33, there will be colored stickers 
available for your name tag that indicate if you have an interest in
signing PGP keys.  If people keep trying to peer with you, you've picked
the wrong color sticker and should go back.

	We are meeting at 9:00pm on Monday in the Flamengo Boardroom for
the key signing.  Those of you that wish to participate, please email an
ASCII extract of your public key to msa at by noon on Monday, 
January 31st.  Please include 'NANOG PGP KEY' in the subject, and if 
possible, don't send your key as a MIME attachment.  I realize that some 
MUAs make this difficult, and I will attempt to fix any MIME-attached keys.
Instructions for extracting your key to an ASCII file are below.

	After 5pm on the 31st, a complete key ring with all of the 
submitted keys will be available at: in binary form, and as
an ASCII file at

	Handouts with the details of each key submitted will be provided.
All you should bring with you is:

	* Photo ID (driver's license, passport, etc.  Consider bringing 2)
	* Your key ID, and it's corresponding hexadecimal fingerprint
	* A pen

	Thanks, and I'm looking forward to seeing everyone in Vegas!


How to extract your public key:

        PGP 2.x:
                pgp -kxa your_email_address mykey.asc

        PGP 5.x:
                pgpk -xa your_email_address > mykey.asc

                gpg --export --armor your_email_address > mykey.asc

        PGP on Windows:

                Start the PGPkeys application, select your key in the
        list, click on the Keys menu, select Export, name the resulting
        file, and make sure that Include Private Keys is NOT checked.

        PGP on a Mac:

                I assume the procedure is similar to the one for Windows,
        but cannot confirm this.  Hopefully it's easy enough to figure
