Added lines 26-36:

Image hosting

okay, not strictly SO/SE related... but other than flikr, I’ve never used online image hosting except in conjunction with a programming question on one of these. Literally one. Today.




I ended up using because it just worked.
I tried imageshack, but it ran afoul my office proxy server, or something and it failed quietly.

July 26, 2010, at 10:01 AM by OtherMichael - multiple OpenID providers
Deleted line 13:
Added lines 16-19:

You can associate one or more Open ID providers with your account; I recommend more than one, as my primary Open ID provider was Live Journal? (I created the account pretty much solely to comment on a friend’s posting, so there it was when I needed an Open ID) --- aaaand sometime in July LJ’s Open ID interface changed, and SO authentication via LJ started to fail. So, I couldn’t log into my account until.... I could log into my account and add an additional Open ID provider.


Added line 21:

NOTE: this needs updating, as the StackExchange system has been undergoing a lot of change in 2010.
