LiveJournal wasn't accepting my LINK tags to my OpenID authentication. I was about to rant about that when I looked it up, and, sure enough, XHTML tags must be lowercase. Well, shit. So I fixed the tags in my header, and was able to login, but now it gives me a separate LiveJournal profile. I can't yet see a way to tie my OpenID login to my existing LiveJournal.

No fucking wonder OpenID hasn't really caught on yet. Things like that, and there's no really simple reference implementation that I can see. The Python library examples are probably small and simple in the author's eyes but to me they are bloated garbage. If I can't reduce it to 25 lines of code, forget it, I'll keep plugging certs instead. I'm just pissed that Google Adsense can't be served up SSL-encrypted.
