For a limited time, we're giving you three extra months of Plus at no additional cost when you sign up for a one-year membership.
The time to become a PlayStation Plus member couldn't be better. We ended 2012 with the addition of PlayStation Plus and the Instant Game Collection on PS Vita, for a combined savings of $2,472 for the year.

To quote from Community Team Moderator Yaster via the official PS EU Forum:
"Hey Guys. Please note that PSN sign in is currently unavailable for the following services:
• PlayStation forums
• PlayStation Blog
• Music Unlimited via the web client
• All PlayStation game title websites
Unfortunately this also means that those who are still trying to change their password password via Playstation.com or Qriocity.com will be unable to do so for the time being. This is due to essential maintenance and at present it is unclear how long this will take.
In the meantime you will still be able to sign into PSN...
