Wow. I can't believe that Sony's Playstation Network is still down! I guess they closed it after a hacker attack about three weeks ago. I'm an XBox, but I was visiting my friend Otis the day after it went down and he was already getting twitchy.
Now it looks like they'll be down for another month, while they completely rebuild the system from scratch. This is never a good idea. It means they're going to push something out that was built in a hurry, and since the implication is that they're doing this to make sure it's hacker-proof, it's going to attract a lot of hackers. So, good luck with that, Sony.
