Rapidshare is closing. And nothing of value was lost.

As reported by Neowin, Rapidshare customers today are greeted with the message:
rapidshare_closing_notice

Which makes me wonder - was anyone still using Rapidshare? Really?

From my experience, their service was really crappy for last 3 years. Files were quickly deleted "due to inactivity" and free download speeds reminded me good old times with 56kbps modem.

Alexa's Traffic Rank seems to agree:

R.I.P. Rapidshare. All hail Mediafire, MEGA or Oboom.
