I have it up on geeklog.info now. Some notes and first impressions:

- Despite the comment in the readme, the OpenID login form is missing
from users/loginform.thtml. Sorry about that.

- The rand() in CUSTOM_uniqueRemoteUsername() should be changed to
something like rand(2,9999) or you'll end up with usernames like

Actually, we should have a built-in function to resolve duplicate
usernames and only use CUSTOM_uniqueRemoteUsername to let users override it.

- Speaking of duplicates: Duplicate email addresses are a problem. Two
of my OpenID accounts now use the same email address as my actual
Geeklog account, so I can't change my preferences in any of those
accounts without changing the email address at the same time. Any ideas
how to resolve this?

- When logging in with my typekey.com account, the URL needs to end in a
slash or it won't find the OpenID server. This only happens on
geeklog.info, though, and not on my local test setup. Odd.

- And of course it didn't take long:

Sa 19 Mai 2007 14:46:04 CEST - Unable to find an OpenID server for the
identity URL h*tp://ywusorepup#hotmail#ru/buy-zyban-online-canada.html

Stupid spambots ...

bye, Dirk
