Anyone having trouble logging into iCloud from their phone or computer? I'm getting "iCloud encountered an error while trying to connect to server"

edit: it seems to be back up now.

Could it be related to this?:

Apple has sent an email to developers notifying them that their iCloud libraries housing iTunes Match data will be wiped on Monday, September 26th at 9AM PDT. The reason for the wipe is to "improve the overall quality and reliability" of the service. The news comes after Apple wiped all the iCloud backup data on Thursday, September 22nd. (Macrumors)

I'd imagine this is the most likely case. Can't blame me for holding out hope though right? :p

It seems to be back up now, at least for the moment. But a question: Is it even remotely possible that the iCloud snafu could have changed some things on my personal computer? Several programs have started behaving weirdly, and I wonder if the cloud has somehow changed preference files and such.
