Have the old PS3 model? Sony advises not turning it on until they sayotherwise

Apparently there is some sort of outage on Sony's Playstation Network.  The issue started late last night as people were being kicked offline with an error code: 8001050F

If you have one of the 'fatter' versions of the PS3, Sony is advising you to keep your console off until they can fix this problem.  There is some sort of time & date issue where by turning it on you risk losing your stored trophy data among corrupting your save data.    That's  pretty severe...

Not only could you risk losing your saved data, but anything that may be subscription based... If you rent movies from the Playstation Network, the console will assume the date is wrong and prevent playback of that rented movie.

I myself own a 60GB Playstation 3 that has support in playing PS1 & PS2 games..   I recently started playing Castlevania: Lament of Innocence and was looking forward to continue playing it after work.. But looks like that won't be the case...
