Secure APT and the new archive key

I think it needs to be more widely publicised that you need to do something like:

apollock@icarus:~$ GET http://ftp-master.debian.org/ziyi_key_2006.asc | sudo apt-key add -
gpg: no ultimately trusted keys found

to get APT to continue to be able to verify packages.

Arooga! Potential feed disruption coming soon

I think tomorrow I'll reconfigure Blosxom's idea of what timezone my posts are in from Australia/Canberra to US/Pacific. Carnage and mayhem will undoubtedly follow on the odd few Planets that I am aware of being aggregated by.

Quotable quote

From a comment on a LWN article:

It's gratifying that Canonical has been able to find so many brilliant people, in part because it means Google hasn't snapped them all up yet, and in part because with Canonical pushing from the east and Google from the south, Microsoft might get pushed into the frigid north Pacific Ocean and drown.
