PGP / SMIME

I decided I’m rather sick of updating my SMIME certificate every year so I’ve gone the PGP route now.
Especially since the toolset for Mac OS X has matured a bunch since last I used it.

If you are a Mac OS X user I highly recommend checking it out (just click the “toolset” link above).
You are looking for “GPG Suite” on the site if you have never installed gnupg before.

I’ve forgotten all my secret key passwords so I made a new key.
You can find it here.
Of course you can also just do a gpg –recv-keys B5D8F08C

Revoked that key for a 4096 bit bettercrypto (followed directions) key.
You can find it here.
Of course you can also just do a gpg –recv-keys 541A59A9 (F291AAC1541A59A9).

If you know me make sure to sign my key as well please.
If I happen to know you I will do the same.

Thanks!

About Browsers Latest Nighty Builds
So I originally grabbed this from:
http://blog.deborniol.com/2010/06/auto-updaters-for-nightly-builds-of-browsers-on-mac-os-x-webkit-chromium-firefox-opera/
And most of the heavy lifting is thanks to the original author!

But it was rather old and several updaters didn’t work I did some changes under the hood.

Namely all updates works as of 03-02-2013.
All Scripts are actually using the current Nightly icons (and are actually installed properly instead of pasting the icon on)
Folder created in Applications has been renamed to Devnet and all Nightly downloads will install there.
Version information is now saved in ~/.devnet instead of having multiple .CURRENT_ files in ~/

To install:
Drag the Devnet folder into your Applications folder
Then open said copied folder and drag the Updaters folder to your Dock so you have a quick launch of each:
Pretty sweet huh?

QuickLaunch

To force re-downloading of a specific app use the “Go To Folder” (Command + Shift + G) in the Finder:
~/.devnet
Delete the .CURRENT file of the browser you wish to re-download.

03-05-2013: I did some changes to the update scripts to make sure none of the temporary files are persistent.
(Making sure LaunchServices doesn’t get confused with multiple copies laying around)
So if you have already downloaded this just replace the updates and you should be good to go.

Download is here.

Oh and if you don’t you probably should use DropBox for sharing files with your clients.
Hit this to give me a referral (gives you 500MB of extra storage).

Hiatus 11-18-2011

I will be out of town for a bit as I’m helping a friend move back to New Orleans.
I will be fielding any support issues if I can (depends upon wireless / cell signal).

Just a heads up for everybody.
I’ll post a lot of pictures when I get back…
