Alternative to Test Run for manual testing?

In the past, at companies that didn't yet have a robust automated testing suite, I've used Test Run to manage manual test scripts for multiple users. It was a pretty handy tool, but the site now seems to be defunct - upgrading past the free trial is broken and nobody seems to be answering support questions. Before I go back to copy and paste with a spreadsheet, I thought I'd check to see if anybody here knows of a similar web-based tool that is actually maintained. It doesn't necessarily have to have every feature that Test Run did, but the ability to write test scripts, assign them to different users, and create one-off test plans from existing tests are pretty key.
There's a LONG listing at the Ministry of Testing including a number of free tools like TestLink (Look for "Test Management" about 1/3 of the way down the page). Another list (conveniently divided into free and commercial tools, but not as extensive) can be found at QTPBook. I've used TestLink and it works well once configured although the user interface isn't always super-intuitive. (Disclaimer - I have no affiliation with either of these sites. I just find the listings useful)
