I inscribed myself just after dinner with OpenID: http://openid-provider.appspot.com/ 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? :(

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.

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.
