That's why you should create a revocation certificate when you create the keypair. If you upload the revocation cert to the DB, the keys get removed.

But yes... my first keypair that I created something like 17 years ago when I was first learning about gpg are still in the DBs and come up when my name is searched. It gives me a chuckle.

IF everyone is in an automatic car that obeys all traffic laws all the time, will there be no more traffic tickets?

If an auto ca can drop someone off at the airport then drive back home, what will happen to all the long term parking garages?

If an auto car will find it's own parking space, is that the end of valets?

I for one am happy to see all that crap come to an end.

Hardware Wise, Windows will never compete with Apple. OSX only needs to support a very, very limit set of hardware components. The Devs know exactly what video, what memory, what board, etc are included in the Macs.

Windows needs to be able to support all the various different types of hardware out there, usually relying on crappy 3rd party drivers for functionality.

I'm IT for a company that does this for 95% of dev/test/qa systems. It's worked out pretty well. Most servers are spun up and then chef'ed, used, then deleted after tests/whetever are complete. We do keep our code in house. SVN/GIT/ and Jenkins along with server build farms are all in house. The cloud services are expensive, but since IT has automated the deployment process for the cloud hosts, it works out better than keeping enough hardware in house to meed all test/qa needs. Plus less hardware in house equals less admin time which is a plus for us.

If you are running drugs for $10mil a month.... feds/gov bust you, seize all your stuff, and you go to jail. but If you are a bank making $10 Bil a month and defraud the whole world and almost destroy the global economy.... feds/gov slap you with a fine for 10% of 1 years profits.... So crime is ok as long as the government gets it cut.
