I experienced some weird behaviour when I tried to login to stackoverflow.com, it gives me an error that repeats after I refresh the page and the login screen shows up again. This traps me in a cycle.

Eventually, it went through and I finally managed to log in.

What is going on?

myopenid is only minimally supported by JanRain, so I recommend adding another email / provider to your account -- remember, we now support an unlimited number of logins per account -- so that you're covered in any case.


It is not unheard of for there to be occasional hiccups in their service, and I believe it is Amazon EC backed, so any Amazon EC outages can affect them as well.
