@ryan thanks, I didn't know about the azure setup, and I might do that.
My one concern regarding the onename api has been some oddities when getting users IDs. For example,I cant seem to figure out why some identities have data in the verification section and others don't. For example my own priofile(starsoccer) has no data, yet the demo one used in the documentation(fredwilson) has data. My account has been twitter verified though like the one in the documentation, yet it does not appear in the verification section.
