New OpenID Server

Until now I’ve been using LiveJournal as my OpenID server, as it’s convenient and at the time it was one of the few services that supported OpenID. But I’ve now switched to a server running on this box which latches onto Movable Type – it’s called OpenID Server, unsurprisingly.
It’s very simple to install and integrates seamlessly into Movable Type. To authenticate comments, you just log in with your MT username and password, and each author on the system can use it.
Having my OpenID hosted ‘in-house’, as it were, means I have more control over it as I know exactly what data is stored; though of course, should my web site go down, I’ll lose access to my OpenID too.
