I would say that they really can't operate cars either.  I imagine these car users going through a mental checklist:
Merge on to ramp
Watch for incoming traffic
Oh crap should I speed up or slow down, I don't remember.  *phew*  managed to merge with only causing a small traffic jam.
Immediately cut off traffic while proceeding to the left most lane, and travelling 10 mph below the speed limit.
*starts raining*

Novell Bringing .Net Developers To Apple iPad 315 315

GMGruman writes "Paul Krill reports that Apple's new iPad could be easier to write apps for, thanks to Novell's MonoTouch development platform, which helps .Net developers create code for the iPad and fully comply with Apple's licensing requirements — without having to use Apple's preferred Objective-C. This news falls on the footsteps of news that Citrix will release an iPad app that lets users run Windows sessions on the iPad. These two developments bolster an argument that the iPad could eventually displace the netbook."

I'm not making the claim that global temperatures are stable.

I'm not making the claim that global temperatures are rising due to natural causes

I'm not making the claim that Global temperatures are rising due to man, but it will have beneficial effects.

I'm not making the claim that Global temperatures are rising due to man, and will cause global catastrophe but all proposed solutions will fail.

I'm saying, the claims your making are bunk because you have no evidence.

You can't prove a negative.  It is the responsibility of the scientists to prove it IS happening.   The "deniers" have been asking the CRU for reproducible data.  They were stonewalled until FOIA request were made.  Then the answer was no we destroyed it when we moved buildings.

There is no data, and the models are not reproducible.  Therefore

Some people manage by the book, even though they don't know who wrote the book or even what book.
