I am now my own OpenID server

I finally got the OpenID server for Movable Type working. This means that I can switch my OpenID that is linked to my web site from a 3rd party. I had previously used myOpenID as the provider, but I wanted to run it myself if I could.

In theory, this means that I can now use my domain as my OpenID for a variety of services, including my own web site. It’s mostly just for fun now, but we’ll see.

I had previously thought about using OpenID to allow visitors to register to edit my wiki, but Movable Type has its own registration system, in addition to allowing OpenID. So, for now, I’ll stick with both unless a compelling reason to change comes up in the future.
