in originally set up for pgp signature, i used 8 characters. this
is where i miss led you. these 8 produce a 40 character fingerprint.

in pgpsignature, 94 characters are produced with first 26 common.

this i understand. where i believe it to be a waste is when a
plain text file is attached and it is converted to mime.

also, a waste is to send a text message in 'base64'.

my apologies for not being more clear. sometimes i tend to be 'terse'
when i should elaborate. and yes, my first use of unix was on teletype
printer. also, my typing is slower than my thinking, and i tend to
leave out when catching up.
