Dot .Mac Down! Temporary Glitch or MobileMe Switch?

Dot Mac Down

Woke up this morning and as per my usual modus operandi, checked mail on my iPhone and then went to read some feeds. That's when it happened, mobile.mac.com (the interceptive RSS reading feature on MobileSafari) came back with a server error.

Seems to be working for me again, but reports have since sprung up of others having trouble with web-bound services of .Mac (though email protocols seems fine).

Server problems round Infinite Loop way? Transitions to MobileMe hitting some speed bumps? Karmic revenge for us knocking the RIM NOC again?

My guess is the road to MobileMe will be a wild ride, server side...

Some .Mac members could not access .Mac services. Normal service has been restored. We apologize for any inconvenience.

I have been down since early this morning. I cannot get my .Mac account to connect in System Preferences. I have even attempted resetting my password without any success.

What Moron at Apple tries to do a major overhaul for MobileMe on a Thursday?
I'm Mobile and I'm ME and I don't give a Rat's ASS about it, but I do care when My .mac
server is down for 10 hours now.
Why not do it Sunday Morning Moscow Time??

I wonder who's idea it was to transfer all paying subscribers over to a beta system. They should have ran dual systems and transfered SLOWLY.
