Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I cleared my cache last night and had to log back into the trilogy this morning for the first time in a long time. As outlined in Google Offers Named OpenIDs I had previously switched the sites to use a named OpenID from Google. Unfortunately, the select OpenID provider on the trilogy sites still default to the old random hash Google OpenID. Not sure if there is a way to provide a good user experience that would result in people using the new Google OpenID but it would be preferable to the current method.

The login page now has Google Profiles (should it be called Google Accounts?) in the secondary row of icons at the end.

Not sure I think Google Profile sums things up. Though not sure you want the underscore in the title text.... – ahsteele Jan 8 '10 at 9:33
it's tied to the code path -- that's used for the image that is retrieved. – Jeff Atwood Jan 8 '10 at 10:10

For now you can type your Google OpenID URL manually:<username>

Since named OpenIDs are still opt-in for Google accounts, I don't know if it would be safe to do it yet, or if there is even a way to implement it.
