A small technical change to the site today. I have installed OpenID, which will let you login and comment from Livejournal or theoretically any other ID provider.
At the login screen, simply enter in the URL of your Livejournal (or other OpenID provider) and login. After a short approval thing you’ll be registered and ready to comment. It’s pretty cool, really.
I’ve only tested with LJ so far. Also until such time as spammers start exploiting OpenID (because I know it will happen eventually) I’ll be auto approving comments made using this feature.
