The new OpenID initiative is shaping up to be pretty cool. I stumbled across OpenID while browsing Reddit this afternoon and signed up for my first OpenID at After logging into a few sites with my new OpenID, I wondered if there was a way to use my own URL instead of the long one I got from myopenid. Sure enough, it was already thought of, and someone even wrote an article on how it could be done.

Based on that article I knew I could quickly modify an existing Drupal module (GoogleVerify) to enable it on my site. After about 2 minutes of coding, I had the module up and working fantastically!

The module has been submitted as a project on and can be downloaded from the projects page.
