    DOH!

    From www.eweek.com:

    "An America Online Inc. error that began locking out users of its instant-messaging service earlier this week affected no more than 10,000 accounts, the company said Friday.

    The company continued to scramble to restore the AOL Instant Messenger accounts by Monday, and an AOL spokeswoman told eWEEK.com that the fix would include reinstating access to IM data such as buddy lists for blocked users."
