Hash: SHA1,SHA512

I am Transitioning to a newer, more secure RSA 4096 GnuPG key.

Yes I know the argument on 4096 vs 8192 strength, I opted for compatibility. 8192 bits are not necessarily "double" in strength & are really only marginally stronger. Bottom line, when 4096 is broken, 8192 will soon follow.

I await the dawn of quantum computing, that's when the fun will really start ;)
