Microsoft Money users locked out

Ouch. Looks like MS misconfigured an authentication server and many MS-Money users were locked out on Monday - and continue to be locked out of their own files. I like the fact that they are talking in the open though.

Saw this on a Microsoft newsgroup:
Here at the Money team we are sorry that we have caused this problem, and we are working as quickly as possible to fix this unfortunate situation.

Let me take a moment to explain what the Money team is doing about this problem. First, let me assure you that none of your financial data has been lost, and none of your personal information has been compromised. In fact, the result of the situation has been that your information has been locked up more tightly.

Can't wait till everybody is doing Web Services...
