Continuing from IRC:
It would be nice if someone knowledgeable could educate the rest of us about
physical key dongles -- a number of DDs/DMs/contributors still keep their
secret keys on a regular disk, and could use a primer.  Me included.  I do
have a backup key with plenty of sigs that's stored securely, but my regular
key is on the same physical machine I test random software on.

There are docs available on the interwebs, but:
21:22 < lamby> The concept of following random docs/commands on the web in
                order to get a "super secure" key makes me smie :)

There's GNUK ("out of stock"), Nitrokey and others -- but how do they
differ?  Actually, at this point it would be easier to skip the details and
say "if you don't know any better, buy X".

Thus: can I has "key dongles for dummies", plz?

+1 on the need for such education/tutorial
