I’ve been playing with gpg again, and decided it was time to bump up my key size in order to have a key that was acceptable for encryption for the next few years. Until quantum computing kicks in, then I’ll have to double/quadruple the key size again… who knows. But for now, I think this will suffice for awhile.

Modifying gpg source code to allow 8,192 bit keys was simple to accomplish and the information is freely available on the net, so I won’t repost it here. However, if you want my new key, here it is

Could have, but had recompiled for the 8,192 bit max key size already, didn't want to recompile.

According to several sources, the 8,192 bit key size should be safe enough for several years.
