but they removed many of good resources due to copyright.

I didn't know that! That explains why I can't find some material I thought I had seen there before (like the dialects dictionary).


I didn't know 暂坐 had been published already, thanks! I just read the 后记, I definitely have to read the rest but have to wait for the e-book to be published.

I used to use nciku back when I was learning Chinese. It was really great. Unfortunately, it died. Now I usually use Taiwan's 萌典 or something. I'm not really interested in paying for dictionaries.
