a) Sorry for top posting. I didn't noticed that but I shall in future.
b) I replace the .ssh and .gnupg directory with the backup i took after just
creating the keys and now keys are working well on my system but still I
can't send it to the key server. Is the key server down? or please guide me
how to locally extract the ASCII from my key and actually which one is the
main key file holding the ASCII among the 5 files in the .gnupg directory?
