Woke up with the moon shining through my skylight. I thought that was odd; I guess I always assumed the moon followed a similar apparent path through the sky that the sun does. But my sunshadow, in the northern hemisphere, would never point to the south as my moonshadow just did. Learn something new every night, heh.

Now that I've gotten a Debian package compiled with DKIM support, I feel a little more confident to tackle OpenID again. How difficult can it be, anyway? I believe the key, for me, is to print up the specs and the tcpdumps of working OpenID sessions and study them. That method always worked for me in the past.

By the way, if anyone trusts me not to crack eir server (bwahahahahaha) my APT repository line for your sources.list is:

deb http://www.unternet.net/apt dubious main contrib non-free

And so you'd fetch my build of the dkim-enabled exim4 with:

apt-get -t dubious install exim4-daemon-custom

If you update exim4-config also, be sure to answer Y to any questions about overwriting config files. Copy /etc/exim4 to another location first if you're concerned about your local modifications being lost. Luckily I have 4 machines running Debian so I could recover from my mistake. Don't worry about getting my "dubious" package of the configuration, I didn't add the rules to /etc/exim4/conf.d/transport/30_exim4-config_remote_smtp until after the build. I'm not very clued-in about building Debian packages yet. Don't even know how to make a source package.

Some of the dependencies are on packages from the "unstable" build; be warned.
