I appear to have had some form of account association glitch.

I was perusing meta and got presented with a "Welcome to" top-hat. I entered my openid credentials and have ended up with a new account, when I should be logged in as http://meta.stackoverflow.com/users/7872/rob.

This is the second time I've had a "weird thing" happen with my account/account associations (the last time was, I think, with superuser). Is it something to do with me "self hosting" my OpenId on robertwray.co.uk? Either way, can I:

  1. Get the two accounts merged
  2. Get a canonical answer as to what I'm doing wrong that's caused this, and how to make sure it doesn't happen? =)

Note: I'm well aware that it's almost certainly something I'm doing wrong, but I'd quite like to know what that is so I can stop doing it! :)

More importantly: How can I login as my other (primary) account, as I'd really rather use that one rather than this one that has no rep, etc,...

One of your openids is through AOL, the other is through your blog. They are two different OpenIDs. I merged the accounts.
