About the dissapearance of Azuchiwind Geocities website:

The Azuchiwind site was a well known and frequently referenced website on the internet and was part of the Rainforestwind Geocities site by the same author. The site was written by a woman from Indonesia known by the pseudonym of Nina Wilhelmina. Apparently she died of complications of meningitis in 2007. Geocities was closed down by Yahoo in October 2009.
