MS dirty tricks archive trickles back to life

Good hosting men needed

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

The 3,000 document archive from the Comes antitrust trial, which disappeared from the web abruptly when Microsoft settled the case last week, is beginning to trickle back into view.

A week ago the site was placed under password protection, Microsoft withdrew its own account of events, and so-called internet "archive" archive.org apparently also pulled its mirror.

Now author Andrew Schulman, who provided the most interesting testimony (report to follow) in the epic trial, has begun to host some material on his personal server.

Over here you'll find daily court transcript, and some of Schulman's own testimony.

It doesn't make much sense without annotation, says Schulman, which he'll begin to do when time permits.

In the meantime, hats off to Groklaw regular Tom Harney, who has agreed to re-host the exhibits, and is looking for hosters.

(Another reader claims to have the full list of exhibits, and seeks anonymous hosting - maybe other readers can help).

And this site contains links to the soon-to-expire Google cache.

We'd caution Mr Harney and our reader against relying on Archive.org, however, despite its beguiling name. It only takes one phone call from Microsoft and you're back to square one.

Useful though it is, it's not really an archive in any sense of the word that an archivist would understand. ®
