Links down?

I've just started noticing some of the reliable links we love so much (56.com, rephh, etc etc etc) are not loading anymore. If you notice a site not working please post a comment here & I'll try finding a replacement. So far Youku (personally I think sux) is still working, slow loading, but working. I believe Toudu is as well.

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 :/
