xmppid - OpenID Meets Jabber

I just found this blog post while looking over the news on Planet Jabber. There is now a web page available that allows you to use your Jabber/XMPP ID (JID) for OpenID authentication. When prompted for a URL to use for OpenID, just add your JID to "http://xmppid.net/." For example, if your JID is "MYNAME@jabber.org" you would specify "http://xmppid.net/MYNAME@jabber.org" for your OpenID URL. You will receive a message with a code on that ID and your browser will be directed to a web page where you must enter the code to complete the transaction. Pretty cool stuff....

I couldn't get it to work...try this instead http://myid.asemantics.com

It sends a message to your jabber client to finalize openid authentication process.
