    WTF! so i pay your ridiculously priced annual subscription for .mac, and firstly i get booted of of MSN Messenger for using a .mac address, now i get kicked out of my apple dev connection!? FU apple.

    You're not able to use .Mac accounts to access any of those types of things, but an Apple ID is free. Set up a new one at myinfo.apple.com, it'll let you onto those types of sites. I'm not sure why, but it hasn't been possible for a little while now.
