"Is the 'Dot-com Graveyard' Buried too?"

The Dot Com Graveyard is Dead
I got this note today:

I read and heard about a site on the Net called something like "the dot-com graveyard" a year or two ago. Now when I try to find it, it is not to be found!

I think it was a kind of huge list of all the web companies and sites that has left their virtual life for a still more uncertain hereafter. There would be pictures too.

Am I wrong or am I too late?

The "the dot-com graveyard" now seems to have become a common expression by columnist, which makes my efforts to find it by search engines frustratingly difficult and timeconsuming.
