The only decent links to the episodes of season 2 i need to watch next seem to be to 56.com which worked until last week - does anyone know why the server is suddenly unavailable???

I found these two posts from our fellow sidereelers to be quite helpful. I hope that 56.com can resolve their issues soon! jimothyjim - 17:28 PDT, 7 June, 2008 Currently 56.com is closing down international traffic to their site during Chinese peak times. The domain 56.com attracted at least 3.2 million visitors annually by 2008 according to a Compete.com survey. Access to Chinese online video provider 56.com has been suspended since 18:00 on June 3, but the company has denied this has something to do with a rumored shutdown by China's State Administration of Radio, Film and Television. Instead the company attributes the suspension to a server malfunction. 56.com made an explanation at 10:00 on June 4th, 16 hours after the website's access was stopped, and said that the website had experienced a server failure and was being repaired, but it did not give a clear time for when the site's services would be fully resumed. Some media, such as Hexun.com and Sina.com, reported that as 56.com has frequently violated relevant government rules with its video content, it has therefore been issued a warning by the government and may be closed for a few days. However, this has been denied by 56.com. What a pile of you know what :/ tvgoop - 11:07 PDT, 6 June, 2008 Guangzhou-based video sharing site 56.com, one of China’s triumvirate of “YouTube clones,” has been temporarily shut down by the Guangdong provincial branch of the State Administration of Radio, Film, and Television (SARFT), acting on orders from SARFT’s national leadership, according to a highly-placed industry insider who declined to be named. The closure seems to have been in effect since 6pm on June 3. Read the rest: Lots of links on sidereel are from 56.com .....
