    The Apple URL for Activation through code has been taken off:

    http://www.mac.com/activate

    But for existing customers and trial customers, it works fine [as of June 30th | 6:35 pm Pacific]

    Google Cache still reflects the page!

    Update: Looks like its back up!

    Hopefully this means we are a few days away from the upgrade, I'd love to see this before the 11th.

    Well my me.com address finally started working. Huzzah. Probably unrelated to the actual time frame of the switch but after the 10.5.4 upgrade dotmac sync started bugging out on me. (Probably just the usual dotmac bugginess.)

    (And yeah, the page, even the cache's URL is activate, not activation)

    Sorry about that! But the URL was definitely off. I had it bookmarked. Every day it showed up but this evening...poof. No Permission Page!

    If you already have your mac registered with a .Mac, it will always work!

    My existing .Mac expires in about 30 days. I just bought a new year of service from Amazon at about a $25- savings. I hope it works to extend my service.

    Apple states that the key will be valid for 9 months. And if it doesn't go by that, it'll be violating its own EULA.

    So my guess is you're pretty much safe! Though I suggest you dig into this a little bit more and find out what other people seem to be doing! ;)
