Is the map down permanently?

It was bought out by an outfit named Platial in 2007 and Feb. 27, 2010 they announced it would be shut down "in a few days" (all per Wikipedia). I guess the few days are up. That's a pity; it was a cool little utility.

ETA: Went up on Platial's webpage; they seem to be mainly into gathering geographical data for businesses to exploit. According to their blog, they were oh-so-sorry to let Frappr go, but gosh, life as a start-up is *so* busy and they couldn't keep up with it. It seems a little silly to acquire something with no idea of what use you're going to make of it other than to neglect it until you decide to kill it off. They were evidently offering back in December some of the Frappr users the ability to keep their maps up for a year for a fee or allow them to download the map data for offline use only. Other than that, adios.

Should our moderators consider removing the link on the left side bar then?

Is there anything similiar that can be done with google maps or otherwise? I didn't initially think much of the Frappr map posting your location because I was concerned about privacy. Then I realized it was a good tool to find out who might be close to a trailer you were looking at or who might be near somewhere you were headed.

I found Frappr less than desirable, cool when it worked, not so cool when it didn't. Their support did not respond when I needed them to.
