Yay open source libraries

The downside of open source is that support is often a bit indifferent -- witness the fact that the released binary version of the OpenID library I'm using is fully 200 revs behind the Subversion repository. OTOH, the upside is that, when something goes wrong, I can, with sufficient blood, sweat and tears, generally fix it myself.

I think I have the OpenID problem mentioned last week dealt with. It looks like LiveJournal is just plain broken (albeit subtly so): they're now including an illegal empty parameter in the OpenID protocol, which was causing the library to choke. I've finally tracked that down and hacked around it by tweaking the library to cope. So with any luck, CommYou login for LJ will be working again when I release the alpha candidate tomorrow...
