FileFront's founders have purchased the site back from Ziff Davis and will be running it independently with all services back online, and proclaim "We are happy to be back!"
Ex-owners Ziff Davis Media had announced last week that the site would "indefinitely suspend" operations as of March 30, blaming current economic conditions.
Surprised, FileFront's users launched a hasty campaign to preserve as many files as possible. When the site's forums came back online on April 1, the timing intially led some to suspect they had fallen foul of a cruel and elaborate April Fools' Day prank.
Thanks, FileFront Founders: you guys are awesome. :D
yeah it's really rad to see them step up... stuff like this never happens
