comment How to use Unicode in “Real Name” bit of key?
Werner Koch, the primary developer of gpg. Although most of the current dev work is going into 2.1 (which is almost out of beta), except for security fixes, of course.

Interesting, is this something Werner is aware of? Oh, BTW, IIRC the default terminal font on OS X is Monaco. Linux is usually one of the Courier variants, though that can change in X and it depends on which window manager.

comment Is there a command line tool to check 32-bit or 64-bit of an exe?
While file is probably the better solution, the +1 is because this kind of help should be rewarded.

BTW, my guess is that the interface and/or font used to interact with GPG on the command line doesn't support that character, even though other parts of the system do (the same thing occurred when I tried here).

Okay, which version of the Unicode standard does your system support and does it support that full specification in all interfaces? BTW, the answer to the second part is almost certainly no, but I'd rather not assume that.

Which unicode character(s) were you trying to add? I'll test it a little ...

Decrypts fine here. :) Also, nice to see you're using TWOFISH.

comment Why is gpg failing when I have installed pinentry?
Excellent. Personally I use my own version of the 1.4.x branch (with all cipher algorithms, larger key sizes and increased secmem). If sticking with the 2.0.x branch you should update to 2.0.22 due to a couple of obscure security issues (unlikely to be an issue on your own hardware, but still).

comment How to prove that email sent on certain date of outlook
And Microsoft changes the method of doing pretty much anything in their software, so even step-by-step instructions will be out of date given enough time anyway. Since the OP hadn't included which version of MS Outlook he's using, pointing to the "View" menu and "Options" or the "Tools" menu and "Options" may or may not be at all useful. When the OP specifies which version of Outlook he's using, I'll give explicit instructions and not before. Otherwise I'll tell him to telnet into the POP3 server and RETR the message manually.

comment Embed a GPG Signature in a PDF File
There is nothing in the docs for that app which indicates it can be used with GPG.

comment How to make GnuPG display full 8-byte/64-bit key ID?
Yeah, I prefer the longer format so much that I have "keyid-format 0xLONG" in my gpg.conf so I don't have to specify it each time. Using --keyid-format 0xSHORT will display keys the default way.
