Setting up a VPN connection on Mac OS X

If you’re new to OS X, here is a great step-by-step instruction guide to setting up a vpn connection.

Mac OS X 10.5 VPN.

Once you have that done, you may wish to connect to your Windows machine at work.  Download and install the Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac here.  The combo is working remarkably well for me.

This will hit some of my enviro-fanatic friends quite hard.  This report was always the proof cited to support the wild predictions in the IPCC report.  Now that it has been withdrawn, due to the inaccuracy of the “settled” science on which it was predicated, it’s my turn to turn up my nose in that condescending manner and lecture them about science.  Damn, I can’t keep a straight face.

Why Is Winter Snow Extent Interesting? « Watts Up With That?

Concerning the record snowfall in the nation’s capital, the last refuge for the scoundrels who shrilly protest the taunts from skeptics is a condescending lecture about how a few snowstorms are insufficient evidence to derive long term climate trends.

While it’s true that isolated weather events are not reliable indicators of broader trends, these particular storms are wonderfully ironic in that they are serving to illustrate an undeniable trend of increasing snow coverage in the northern hemisphere.

How appropriate that Washington, after giving us all a snow job on climate change, is getting one of their own.

BP, ConocoPhillips and Caterpillar Pull Out of Climate Partnership – WSJ.com

BP, ConocoPhillips and Caterpillar Pull Out of Climate Partnership – WSJ.com.

The jig is up on the Global Warming blackmail scheme.  Three major energy companies are backing out of the Climate Action Partnership – which is nothing more than a lobbying group for energy companies whose main purpose is cutting deals with congress and the White House in exchange for preferential treatment in climate related tax legislation.

Make no mistake, these companies bear a large portion of responsibility for furthering the hoax of AGW.  By refusing to fight, and turning to negotiation instead, they publicly accepted the premise of the scam and used PR campaigns to try to persuade the media and the duped population that they were “greener” than the rest.

Fortunately, now that the IPCC reports have fallen apart and the authors disgraced, the big stick that had been used to beat these companies into submission is gone.  Let’s hope the executives of these companies will stop facilitating fascism and redirect the money budgeted for “green initiatives” to better energy and job producing projects.
