gpg: Good signature from "Sejal Patel (Bio Mage) <sejal iname com>"
gpg: cannot open /dev/tty: Device not configured

Shouldn't the message say that it is authentic ? Could this be because
I'm looking up on a public keyserver, instead of a private keyring ?

I'm not an expert on GnuPG, so any help is accepted.

In order for a signature to be authentic to you you have to sign it in
your public keyring or something like that.  I've only authenticated the
keys from my family and that was a while back so I don't remember the
exact steps but it really isn't very difficult.
