BlogShares a victim of the BlogSEC?

BlogShares - Closed Down

I noticed that the Blogshares icon, usually served from their site hasn't been displaying, and quickly discovered:

Dear BlogShares players,

I am sorry to announce that BlogShares will not be reopening after the current technical difficulties are resolved. Currently, the database server is dead and looks to be for the next few days.

The latest system crash has highlighted to me that deliverying a fun, useful service for the BlogShares community requires an active operator and developer. As most of you are no doubt aware I've been neither for the past couple of months. That has led to a decline of quality service, new features and ultimately income for the site and it looked likely that there wouldn't be enough to pay for next month's hosting.

Update: The Blogshares powers-that-be now say the site is in the process of coming back.
