Hey Sean (Shawn? Shaun? other?), have you checked back recently? I haven't gotten the error for a while now, when browsing the gallery or contest entries at designbyme.lego.com
Maybe they got an additional server to handle the traffic? I haven't received word back from Haakon (designbyme technical guy) yet, but I just noticed I haven't gotten the error for a while.
Between plotting to kill you all and chasing balls of yarn, I also build MOCs
