No you can carry on using it as long as you like however there will be no more system and security updates and the repositories will be closed at some point.

As I said, the repositories will be closed, there will be no more updates and it will be classed as obsolete, but you can continue to use it as it is. If you are not happy with that then you need to upgrade.

8.04 Hardy Heron (see http://releases.ubuntu.com/ ) server edition only still has some life left in it until April 2013, I believe. But if you are looking for desktop related files, forget it. Elyssa was dropped from updates for desktop version in October 2009.
