Btw, I'm @forteller on

Update: I was not allowed to post a comment without filling in name and e-mail, which makes the use of OpenID on this blog kinda non-existing. Are you using the latest version of the OpenID plugin?

Update 2: Even after filling in name/email I'm having problems. I get this error message: "You must submit a comment using the comment form." Trying without my OpenID-enabled URL ( now.

Julian: I hope you'll @ @evan about that OpenID problem so he can fix the bug behind it.

Jason: I've used for many months now and it's been working all the time. I didn't have problems adding the Jabber bot either. Are you 100% sure you didn't do anything wrong? At least it has a Jabber bot, which Twitter does not, so I hope that's not what makes you say that doesn't work!

I can't get my OpenID to work on the site, though, and I've absolutely no idea why. (It works here)

Still, it's definitely worth to look at, especially because it's open source.

By: Aaron Thu, 03 Jul 2008 04:14:41 +0000 You've missed the point of the post then.

By: [^BgTA^] Thu, 03 Jul 2008 04:13:37 +0000 What about Friend Feed? ( it's not opensource, but it has a good features...
