Playing With OpenID

I've been playing around with OpenID on the few occasions I've had internet access over the Christmas break and have it set up, but not ideally. Currently, everything points to as the OpenID URL, but server and delegate. Ideally I'd like my identity URL to be just and the server ad but I'm not familiar enough with the whole process to make it work.

Mostly I've followed Sam Ruby's instructions, but the process was done in a few different sessions following a few other explanations of OpenID, but I think it matches what Sam describes.

Given that there's not really anything out there that accepts OpenID that I want to use, it's not really that beneficial so I'm not sure how much more effort I'll put into it. Anyway, we'll see if I ever get a chance to use it – perhaps I'll have to go comment on Sam's blog just to test it out.
