You must change your password/You have reached password changes for a 24 hour period

In episode 120 of my podcast I announced that DC Universe Online was going to a free-to-play model in October. So with it being the 2nd of October I thought I'd go ahead and download the client and give it a try.

The first thing I found was that the free-to-play model isn't active yet. WTF?

The other, and more annoying thing, is that the Sony Online Entertainment website required that I change my password. So, of course, I had no choice but to do so. Then the system kicked me back to a login prompt again after the password change. The change obviously worked since I could use it to login.

But it then said I needed to change my password AGAIN in order to go to the DC Universe Online site to download the client. And when I tried to change my password, it said I had exceeded the number of times you're allowed to change your password in a 24 hour period.

Really? It's not like I WANT to change it.

So now I can authenticate, but can't get past the "you must change your password" page. EVEN THOUGH I DID THAT ALREADY.

/me sighs and shakes head slowly...

And I'm still a little annoyed that it's October and the game's still not free.
