So with much fanfare, fireworks and music, we announced the arrival of The
Year Two Thousand and depite the hype for the Year Two Thousand Bug, nothing
much of not actually happened, which is a good thing.
The party was hosted by my friend Teen and her boyfriend outside their home
in lovely Parkland, FL. They dig a pit for the bonfire and by the time I
had arrived at 9 pm, it was pretty thick with coals already. By the time my
and I put the fire out, the coals were hot enough to melt glass.
The actual fanfare consisted of a lot of fireworks being set off by various
party members. All of the fireworks consisted of variations on Roman
Candles—none of the fireworks we had were capable of being fired up in the
air—but we did have enough going that a large cloud of smoke was drifting
its way lazily across the field and the nearby horses (the party was held
near a stable) were all spooked and one broke out of its stable.
The fact that I still had a house, with power, was a plus.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or

simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
