The Open Access web-only journal "Phyloinformatics" seems to have  
disappeared, with the Internet address http://www.phyloinformatics.org  
now up for sale. This means the articles have just disappeared!

There weren't many papers published, but some were interesting and have  
been cited in the mainstream literature.

This also illustrates the problems with linking to digital resources  
using URLs, as opposed to identifiers such as DOIs. With the loss of  
the domain name, this journal has effectively died.

A sobering lesson...
