About the same time that I implement OpenID on my personal blog for authentication and finally get a personal OpenID running so I can use it elsewhere, I start hearing it talked about all over the place. Nice to see that it might be a technology that gets adopted broadly.
The OpenID I plan on using publicly is http://cavorter.cavort.org, so if you see some permutation of that around the net where OpenID is allowed, it should be me.
Likewise, the OpenID stuff here appears to be _mostly_ working pretty well. The small issue that I’m having right now is trying to tweak my comment spam detection package (Spam Karma 2, Highly recommended) to stop dropping OpenID validated comments in the spam bucket because the Name listed is a URL. I think I’ve mostly got it figured out though finally.
Also, those of you who actually visit the site have probably noticed that I did actually get around to switching templates. I have tried to use Ocadia before but never thought it quite worked. The new widget-ized version is pretty good, but I need to tweak the sidebar some to get it to a more functional width. Unfortunately I’m pretty sure that means I’m going to need to fiddle with the graphics. Oh joy.
