I inscribed myself just after dinner with OpenID: thinking it was the right way to authenticate a OpenID account, unfortunately now I created an account there and I can't login any more :(

Unable to log in with your OpenID provider:
Positive assertion sent with OpenID version 1.1 but Identifier discovery suggested would be 2.0.

How can I get back to my old account? :(

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Use the email address at the bottom of every page.

edit: you should also know that you're using a completely unsanctioned OpenID provider that has no affiliation with Google. Really, really not recommended. To use the real, official Google OpenID click the giant Google logo on the login page

I tried. This is pretty weird :(

I found this guy that had same problem as me: Unable to log into SO with Google OpenID account

Just a gentle reminder. This should be added as a comment or updated into your own question post. – o.k.w Dec 31 '09 at 7:06
sry :D has anyone got any clue? i can't even associate my email with the new account because stuck with the other:( – PirosB3 Dec 31 '09 at 10:09

It should now all be sorted; the only problem is that I think I broke the association between your SO and MSO accounts, but it is easy to re-associate - or wait a little while (until you have 200 points), and get the free bonus.
