From time to time it's good to see technology doing what it's supposed to do. Ever since I started experimenting with OpenID I've started to like it more and more.

Today I switched OpenID providers since my previous favourite started having DNS problems. Since this is something that is expected with OpenID there is no real problem in changing providers. I just modify my identity page to reflect the new provider info and all sites I used to use work just normally. Naturally there are exceptions to this, Commongate is one of the sites that bind to the provider, so the next time I log in I will get yet another identity to that site.

So now I'm using MyOpenID which provides a slick way to log in to my account. I can use the traditional username/password method or an SSL certificate. I love the freedom to choose!
