Agent admitted failure to sign using the key.

I recently had to reload the operating system and managed to lose all my ssh keys.  After finding a copy around, I scratched my head for an hour wondering why they weren’t working.  The permissions were all right on the client and server.  It turns out I neglected to run the ssh-add command to add the keys to the authentication agent.
