If we haven't met yet, I'm Issac.
I am an engineering manager at a company in San Francisco (though they're a worldwide company) called Stripe. I am inside a group called Treasury Engineering, where I work on helping manage Stripe's liquidity and foreign exchange products and services both internally and for Stripe's customers.
This is not about Stripe but I'll say: It's really quite nice to be able to say all of that.

I need to setup wal-e on my home server because recovery plans are good.

I have to update my expired GPG key today.
I followed a guide saying "Set up a master key, with no expiry and keep it somewhere safe, and use that to make new keys, and revoke/expire them if necessary"
I did that. Then my "child" key expired (in April 2019) and now I can't make new password with "pass"
I followed these two guides
Updating the expiry

I'm Issac. I live in Oakland. I make things for fun and money. I use electronics and computers and software. I manage teams and projects top to bottom. I've worked as a consultant, software engineer, hardware designer, artist, technology director and team lead. I do occasional fabrication in wood and plastic and metal. I run a boutique interactive agency with my brother Kasey and a roving cast of experts at Kelly Creative Tech. I was the Director of Technology for Nonchalance during the The Latitude Society project. I was the Lead Web Developer and then Technical Marketing Engineer at Nebula, which made an OpenStack Appliance. I've been building things on the web and in person since leaving Ohio State University's Electrical and Computer engineering program in 2007. Lots of other really dorky things happened to me before that, like dropping out of high school to go to university, getting an Eagle Scout award, and getting 6th in a state-wide algebra competition. I have an affinity for hopscotch.
