Keysigning/Identity Party At UTOSC

Among the many events happening at UTOSC, you can join in the BOF session and become a part of the Utah web of trust.  Yes, we’ll be having a keysigning party, and some people had mentioned also doing cert signings.  This is a great chance to join in the best geek social network of all, one that actually has value.  You should see some new posts and emails coming out soon with more information, but if you would like to join the web, send your gpg information to gpg – at – scottr dot org.

For information about what you need to send, or how to get started, follow these instructions.  Remember to upload your key to a public keyserver, and then send the key you will use to the aforementioned address.  There will then be a web page with all the attendees fingerprints, which you will be able to verify at the party.

Google rescues the TV

At home we have a pretty nice Mistubishi TV that we’ve had for a few years now.  All of the sudden my wife starts complaining about getting a V-Chip block on random shows, and it won’t go away.  Our standard passcode for that type of device wouldn’t work.  Another opportunity for google to the rescue (and making this geek look better for the wife).

For anybody that cares, if you get the V-Chip code prompt on a Mitsubishi TV, pressing ‘9 + QV’ will allow you to enter a replacement code.  Nothing like wonderful security.  At least in this case it allowed us to watch “PG” rated tv again.
