Perhaps I am missing something here...

PGP is a public key system. If you are going to be doing a mail system based on this, it seems to me that the receiving email client would check to see if the public key associated with the email address is on file. If not, request the public key from the email address. If the key is on file it could even check and verify that it is the same. If it is different, throw a warning.

I don't see that there is a need for central key distribution.

I also really enjoyed "Homeworld" by Harry Harrison. Protagonist is an EE. Big brother state. It was part of the "To the stars" trilogy, but I particularly liked this book.

I also liked some of his other books like "Rebel in Time" and "Bill, the Galactic Hero".

Unless you have a car which doesn't have a robust transmission...

Our Hyundai Accent apparently has an automatic transmission which has a design issue with the thrust bearing which can wear out in about 100,000 miles. We had ours go at 180,000 but a 100,000 mile transmission failure is not unheard of in the older Accents apparently...

It's been a business doing pleasure with you.
