2011-07-01 09:40:44Technical problems at the Heartland denier conference
John Cook


This transcript of their live chat window makes for amusing reading (highlighted my LOL parts):

nataler: down again
paul: ahhrrrrgg
CloudDancer: sound off...
Heartland: We have asked people not to download. We have the hotel Tech guy coming down to 'check' the line. We are working on this and are very sorry.
Tom: At least we have an idea as to how good it could be!!!
Lex: someone hook an iphone up with ustream there
nataler: This will make a news story on its own! Alarmists block anti- agw conference looks very bad for them
joeljoseph: Could this be carbonista sabotage
SwedeGuy: HL, do you have a dedicated line?
Heartland: Yea. Dedicated through the hotel.
Lex: lol
QuestionAGW: Make sure the hotel tech guy's name badge doesn't say "Joe Romm"
Mark_us: lol
Alvin691: Yup, there you go. Lowerst bidder?
Heartland: LOL. We will

Tom: You're just on the wrong side of the issue to get funded!
nataler: These AGW will simply NOT allow these people get there message accross its that simple unfortunately they will be unable to chnage the cooling climate and they will pay later very heavily chao
joeljoseph: suckssuckssucks All of these scientists there and they can't get it together
SwedeGuy: And if CAGW people knew that netroot downloading will do that be sure that they will indeed go back to their roots......
KR: Hotel folks have any idea what's jamming things?
nataler: They are devoid of character
Heartland: Hotel Tech is looking into it now.
CloudDancer: somebody needs to do some sleuthing there and find out if there really is sabotage....
SwedeGuy: Check the hotel guest list maybe........
Lex: @Nik  now that is quality
CloudDancer: if so, shame on the sabotagers
KR: By the way, anyone know how many attendees are there in person?
nataler: ANYBODY would have guessed this would happen organizers should have been prepared!
CloudDancer: The hotel should be embarrassed and ashamed also...
Tom: viewers are creeping back to 300!

The black helicoipters are circling ;)

Their paranois is truly mind boggling.

Maybe they wouldn't be so paranoid if so many weren't out to get them.

Like me.

Well, it does suggest that they are thinking along certain lines.

Hehehe I love denier paranoia.

I also love that Inhofe backed out of the conference beceause he was, in his own words, "under the weather".  Hiiiiiii-larious!

What is it Steven Cobert says? "Facts have a known liberal bias." I guess technical problems do too. ;-)
