I remember reading a story on tom's hardware a few months back about file front having money problems and going out of business. Looks like you guys managed to get some money together and keep going. So how did that all work?

Looking around I still some old members are still active.

Hey, welcome back :)

The Filefront site along with the forums went offline in March/April due to those financial worries. Some of the old management apparently stepped in and brought things back to life when just about everyone had given up hope. Very dramatic.

Now we're back, Filefront is being restructured (they relaunched their site a while ago) and the forums are doing ok too.

They seem a little slow traffic wise. It is the middle of the day in the US during the summer. The spam forum's most recent post was 5 minutes ago!

I survived my first year. Pittsburgh is fine right now. The G20 is coming up next month which should be fun to watch. They are having a dinner at Phipps conservatory which is an all glass building. I live in a building that can see Phipps, so you know there will be secret service in my residence hall that day.

This summer was crappy. I lost my old job, and my new job only gives me 4 hours a week. Fall semester is looking to be much better though.

Welcome back. Yeah, I noticed it as well. The forums are a lot more sparsely populated than when I first joined, or even when I first started posting regularly.

Not very secret, are they?

I wonder who made a choice of places to go. The whole area surrounding the place is a park with plenty of places to hide. The news says Obama(spell check wants to put Osama lulz) chose Pittsburgh because it is a city that has recovered from loosing it industrial base by switching to services like healthcare.

Too bad they did not do a bar crawl. It would be fun to see who could drink more, German, Russian, French, or English.

I remember you clearly. Welcome back! I did notice a drop in activity, but only the first month.

Ah, the pranks you could play and the prosecutions that would follow!
