Teleflip is Dead?

Well, it looks like is down. This is a shame because Teleflip made sending SMS messages through email very easy. Say you wanted to text someone, you could just email the person's phone number like so.

The only drawback was that teleflip put a small plug at the end of the SMS message, which took up about 10% of the available message characters. But hey, what do you want for free?

I hope this is a momentary outage, but I have a feeling teleflip will not be coming back. Sometimes a good thing for free ends up being a bad thing for the business offering the free service.

Anyone know of something similar?
