And having been so long disassociated with the CP list (and computers, too:  Having been stuck in prison or denied access to computers for most of 15 years), I don't even recall how to do it.  
> I have another reason to not 'do' PGP:  Particularly due to the (unexpected) arrival of this 'Sanjuro' person, I am well aware that there are probably more than a few Feds who are on ultra-high alert, and from their point of view they may think of me as being "Suspect #1".  If I go back and start using PGP again (even if only for signing things) I wonder what they will think.  At the moment I have little need for secrecy, so I choose to not do PGP.

I use ordinary anti-virus programs, but I'm under no illusion that the NSA/CIA/GCHQ/TLA's of other nations can't devise a targeted bug that such software cannot find.)     If any of you are interested in helping me confirm or deny this paranoid suspicion, I would very much appreciate your assistance.)

I've never had an unlisted/unpublished phone number.).

For those who doubt, I have Skype set up to do a voice videophone.  There is a picture of me, in a green sweater, taken by Declan McCullagh about June 2000 on the web; I haven't changed a lot.  (I even have my green sweater, too!).
