I mostly use my key for signing, and have the subkey CF1A 5685 for this purpose. However, I don't sign every message, only when it makes sense to, for example when I know the recipient uses PGP and would want to verify that the email came from me. For encryption I use 00B6 FCCC.

Please don't use any of my previous keys. In particular, FAF8 F1C4 4F10 E478 has now expired, and I've no easy way to revoke it. Moral: always generate a revocation certificate when you generate a new key and keep it safe!
