Board the windows! Get out your bat! Don't say the "zed" word! Friendster is back from the dead!

The crusty old social network is bouncing back this year, according to Alexa stats, and it's bringing fresh money with it — a whopping $10 million investment from three top venture capital firms. Is this newfound hope for Friendster because of the new traffic (which shows up on Alexa but not on another ratings system)? Or is it the recently awarded patent for something Friendster didn't invent?

Either way, if there's one thing all those B-movies taught us, it's that there are still ways to kill a zombie.
