I added an answer to a superuser question some time ago using a name entry rather than an OpenID. (Actually, I think the original question was moved from Stack Overflow to superuser.)
Since then, I have discovered the wonders of Stack Exchange and created an OpenID applicable to several areas. How, then, can I associate that original answer and its rep points to my current OpenID username?
Note, I did try to login as that user with the email address I believe I entered, but it sees the email address as new and wants me to create a new account. Is this what I need to do? I want to make sure I'm linking/merging the two correctly. (Just to clarify, I did not create an account when I answered the original question.)
