Crypto for Beginners
Introduction to Applied Cryptography for Secure Communication and Commerce (c)There is no such thing as a "web of trust" signed by unknown (or corruptable) entities. Your key does *NOT* link your meatspace entity to your email address. You might have separate keys (and separate emails) for each identity you maintain. None of which need be linked to your meatspace "true name". In fact, you could have different identities of yours sign your other keys, and the gullible would believe them (you)! The eBay equivalent is having one 'identity' give positive feedback about another 'identity', fooling those who assume they are different physical-entities. Don't assume that the "web of trust" has anything to do with trust, just because it (ab)uses that word. Think about collusions of signers. Think about multiple identities.Remember that the Govt issues false "real-world" IDs when it is convenient for them to do so. see samsimpson.com/

What is upload? What is ascii mode? What is binary mode?
When you get the program from somebody's website to your computer, it is usually referred to as "downloading" the program. When you get the program from your own computer transferred up to your website, it is usually referred to as "uploading." Most people use a program called an "FTP client" or simply "FTP" to upload things to their websites. If you are using FTP to upload to your website, then your FTP program will usually give you an option of whether to upload in "binary" or "ascii" (sometimes known as "text" or "text-only") mode. BIG CLUE, you MUST use ascii mode to upload a Perl cgi program to your website, or it will not work. If you cannot figure out how to do this, then call your website's Technical Support staff, or read the manual or other documentation for your FTP program.
