Breaking News: Shocker (not) the Ellora’s Cave site is down.
Since yesterday (6/30/2015) the Ellora’s Cave site as been “under construction.” According to a post on their Facebook page, there’s a new site coming. One has to wonder why they didn’t sandbox the new site and just swap it out with the old one once it’s done? That would, after all, be a best practice. … Read More
Ellora’s Cave versus Dear Author lawsuit: @pubnt’s motion to quash…DENIED.
The motion stands for itself. Thanks again to Courtney Milan for posting this. (I missed it when it first came out.) Bottom line? If you don’t know what the fuck you’re doing in terms of law, hire a damn lawyer to work for you instead of filing pro se. Especially since (as you’ll read) @pubnt … Read More

As Deirdre points out, running your own site involves a bit of IT knowledge above and beyond the average Interwebz user. I don’t use the same procedure or methods she uses, but I do use … Read More
More on Ellora’s Cave vs. Dear Author: Sometimes, you feel like a Nut…
Courtney Milan, as usual, does a great job of parsing out the latest idiocy legal filing in the Ellora’s Cave versus Dear Author suit. This is a letter faxed to the court by the Twitter account @pubnt (aka The Nut) claiming oh noes, we can’t testify, because we don’t know nuttin’. (See what I did … Read More

Another Ellora’s Cave vs. Dear Author lawsuit update.
The judge denied the TRO order because EC indicated they were going to drop that part of the case and wanted to minimize hearings. http://deirdre.net/elloras-cave-tro-officially-denied/ Next deadline is scheduled for February 25. Let’s see what happens then.
The latest on the Ellora’s Cave Debacle
A couple of things to update.

As always, Courtney Milan does a great job of tl;dr’ing the ruling … Read More
