Lord Lawson, founder of the Global Warming Policy Foundation is to pay Viscount Monckton an undisclosed retainer for I.T. consultancy services following a failure of the GWPF's server to post valid scientific information on multiple occasions.
Monckton's computing skills are a matter of record among climate modelling professionals. Lord Monckton denies* that he once hacked into the Home Office Large Major Enquiry System to cite Prince Charles for over a thousand unpaid parking tickets. A reliable source has obtained an excerpt from the c.v. which Monckton submitted to the GWPF.

... one of the world's first portable computers, ... Osborne 1, with a 5" screen, ... which I had learned to program in machine language as well as BASIC.
The latest I.T. foul-up occurred when a blatantly obvious cherry-pick intended for publication at midnight on March 31 was published in error 24 hours too soon.
* Well, he would, wouldn't he?
