Things had to get worse before they have a chance to get better. At some point, however, they get so bad that it’s time for the pendulum to swing back in the other direction. I think we may have reached that point.
This is a follow-on letter to Judge Hogan and Judge Leibensperger I sent last week:
The full package is here (the document not valid were attached to Fitzpatrick’s “oppositions”, which I need to scan in as he hasn’t sent them to me by email).
Summary: what is happening should be completely unacceptable to all of us: what is happening is an embarrassment for us all (Judges violating Constitution, pro se bias, etc.). Therefore, as you are Judges, it is your responsibility to intervene.
Let’s see what happens next.
After 2 reschedules, had a hearing yesterday with Judge Hogan. Here is my plan for what was said (feel free to comment/contribute) and there is an audio transcript for the hearing that I might get later.

I do not know enough to speak intelligently about legal matters, but, as an entrepreneur who engaged the legal system pro se (here ya go), I’d like to point out some “inefficiencies”, offer some solutions, and begin discussing my future role with respect to the judicial system.
At the end of the day, I am very happy that the JoVE dispute has happened, for it made me aware that not all is well with our judicial system and the streets are, in fact, not paved with cheese. How so?

OK, I just spent a day trying to set up PHP on Windows 2003 with IIS and SQL Server. Ugh. Not fun. So that people who come across don’t have to repeat, this is what I did… I think:
php.iis.net – just straightforward install
In IIS – adjust web services extensions so that php-cgi is visible
In IIS – adjust mapping so that .php maps to php-cgi
install new SQL PHP driver from here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=61BF87E0-D031-466B-B09A-6597C21A2E2A&displaylang=en and follow directions to install
I also added some MS SQL-related stuff in the PHP installation features, but I don’t think it made a difference.
So, as Danitza would say: PHP – suck it.
