close. iirc, it doesn't log into multiple sites at once, it allows
sites to authenticate against the user base of other sites. so if you
have a user name and password on justinhileman.info, you can sign in
to drupal.org (or whatever sites it's set up for) as
user at justinhileman.info, with your password. then drupal.org asks my
server to authenticate you, so that you don't have to register for
drupal.org. it's more like a universal user name than a simultaneous
multisite authentication.
