That whole Unknown error 29 thing with a .jpg url seems to e what Yahoo does now instead of locking your account when you fail to login too many times too often. Its pretty much the same as locking it, except clients that support it can show this image and you can type in its text and log in. Otherwise you can just log in to yahoo's site. Then you can get the invalid password error like the rest of us.

not really, just wait a while for it to stop. The system locked your account because you tried to log in too many times and it could take up to a few hours to reset.
