Why do you think that it's TMS shutting down zap2it? I've always seen msgs 
that zap2it has a particular problem or the user does with his system and it 
always gets worked out.

I don't know why TMS would be shutting down early when they have stipulated 
Sep as the month. I would look somewhere else for the problem. Yes, it could 
be zap2it, and it sometimes is but  not due to them shutting down.
