Is brickshelf dead?

Uh-oh. Yesterday I was surfing brickshelf before it was time for dinner. I left the window open (I was looking at some zizy2 mecha), and when I came back from eating, I refreshed. This is what I saw.

Brickshelf has discontinued operation. We apologize for any inconvenience.
I was slowly switching over to flickr, so it isn't a HUGE HUGE deal for my pictures, but like Andrew said, it is a cornerstone of the lego community. It cripples my lego inspiration bookmarks folder, and quite a few lego websites.

You can still use Maj, Kevin Loch's other image website, but it's for non-lego pictures as well.

*sigh* I don't know what to do :(

Occasional driving force of the blog, self-proclaimed Lukas fanboy, and aspiring engineer, Jacob spends too much time building LEGO, not enough time practicing piano, and not nearly enough time doing school. He also enjoys long sentences. In the instance of blogging, he believes in quantity over quality, wherever quantity can be maintained.
One of the cofounders of YSAB, and the founder of YSA, Observing Mike actually being productive is a rare occasion. Mike enjoys making outlandish claims in relation to actually building, pretending he's actually sorting his collection, and making excuses for why he hasn't photographed his MOCs. In his free time he enjoys learning CSS from Spook, photography and poking badgers with spoons.
Occasional builder, occasional blogger, and full-time procrastinator. That's really the only way to describe Dean. He rarely gets anything done, but is a very active lurker. He's probably seen and liked your MOC, but just forgot he had a blog.
Erik is still a teenager.
Lukas is tall, blond, mildly OCD, and doesn't build nearly enough as he would like to, thanks to school. He has a webpage.
Spook (Tim)
The resident codemonkey and graphics person. If something isn't working correctly, it's probably his fault. Fitting to his name, he doesn't post often, but someone has to do this stuff too, right? Spook does build with laygoes, and has his own blog as well.
