Websites born, live and sometimes die. Some of them were interesting and would have deserved a longer life. But they left the network and sometimes our memory. In addition to the previous and alive links, here is a small online cemetery.

http://jurisweb.citeweb.net It was a website, analysing current legal matters, and newest court decisions. R.I.P.
http://www.cerclo.com This site provided very comfortable chatrooms and a general forum. Financial difficulties finally killed it. R.I.P.
http://www.parlonsdetout.com It was an excellent general forum. Like the previous one, it couldn't resist to financial difficulties. R.I.P.
http://www.tartalacrem.com This site has been for long one of the best offensive humor ones. It has today disappeared but may reappear one day. R.I.P.
http://www.taleban.com It was a taliban propaganda website. Its disparition is of course a very good news, but reading such propaganda was indeed very funny. R.I.P.
http://www.cctv3.com This chinese TV channel used to broadcast online. It was really more attractive that CCTV 4 and 9 which are today the only remaining ones.
http://www.geocities.com/TelevisionCity/station/9174 This website displayed Chinese songs, mostly from overseas (Singapore and Taiwan), in real audio.
