So if I was verifying my signature in that my latest message manually, I
would need two files, which would be message and signature.asc and the
verifying command would be "gpg --verify message signature.asc" (or were
they swapped)?

If we think that I am verifying the signature in my latest message,
http://lists.debian.org/debian-user/2012/04/msg00748.html , how would I
get the message part of it? Or is just copy-pasting and saving it
enough? (Or is it impossible? :)).
