Do you already have an account on thedatahub.org. We have recently
changed so that you can't login in via openid without already having
an account (it's the only way we have essential stuff like a decent
username for you and an email!).

My guess is the classic problem we have google and openid login (and
why we are strongly minded to deprecate openid entirely): google's
openid identifier is per website and because ckan.net now redirects to
thedatahub.org it is not recognizing you.

OK, so I (any other sysadmin could do this) have changed your username
to tommorris. I will send you password via email. You could then login
and associate openid with your account (put it in openid field) though
issue with google is you don't know what it is before logging in with
it (your existing openid is already there).
