If you're having trouble getting into your Xbox Live account, you're not alone; Microsoft says some Xbox Live services are down, and it's working to restore things back to normal.
In addition to the sign-in issues, "We are aware of an issue members are having sending and receiving messages, seeing friend's statuses, sending or receiving game and party invites, and accepting friend requests on Xbox LIVE," Microsoft says on its Xbox status site.
"We are currently working as fast as we can to get this issue fixed, thank you for your patience during this time and we will update you with any new information we receive."
That was the situation as of 9 p.m. ET Saturday. The best thing to do is keep trying every half hour or so, and checking the status site. Or, maybe now's a good time to tackle those taxes you've been putting off ...
Update 11:30 a.m. ET Sunday: Microsoft's Xbox Live status page says that the service is back, "up and running."
