What is my user ID?

I know that I have read that the stackexchange sites use SQL Server and IDENTITY columns, is this that number, or some other ID number?

I have 177800 in my URL that points to my stackoverflow profile page, does this mean I was user 177,800 to sign up on that site?

Yes, that is your unique user ID for that site. What I mean for "that site" is this: (my profile)
