I bought this book after reading the free chapter thinking I would learn how to program with Cocoa for the Max OS X platform. Two hundred pages into this and no programming. This book is good for reference only. It takes you on the history of Unix, Cocoa, some older programs that Apple used to use, breaks down in depth what particular windows do, classes, etc... But never once teaches you how to build a project. You can download prewritten projects on Wiley's website, but this does nothing for those wanting to learn how to code with Xcode. I am at page 200 and am looking for a new book. I will keep this for reference only. Do not read this book if you do not have any experience with Xcode or programming for the Mac platform(s). You will become so confused you may throw your hands up in disgust. No wonder why few people program for Apple and this explains why the programs that are out there are way behind those of Microsoft software products. I am not going to let the complexity hinder me in learning how to program. You should find another book, buy this only as a reference. For those that are coding with Xcode and Interface Builder this book might help you troubleshoot your program.

(Please do not intrude on our territory anymore. The kit came to Jayclan by choice, and it is not fair for you to take it. If the kit wandered to Jayclan, escaped to Jayclan, etc., I'm sorry for bothering you. But if the kit was going to join Jayclan and you took them, please stop. We are tying to remain being an active and big clan, but it is not possible if our members are taken away. Additonally, it is power playing if a kit carrries another kit. The best you could do is drag them one step at a time if they didn't try to run and if they were helping you take them. Thank you, and again I appologize if you weren't 'stealing' the kit.)<br> ~$ilverstar of Jayclan

The men were furious that woman had all the power and didnt undee stand s<_>hit we do today! But. Ww made every one equle. Mariges were partnerships not who gets power! Women she beyond our feeling wee want to kn ho others feel. Guy dont give a f<_>uck they want power! They made wemon secondary!

The beautiful cream colored shecat looked at the handsome toms, wondering if any of them were single. She padded out to the forest, and stretched.
