The world runs on a different, and worse, an alien clock, to me. I called
the A/C repair people because the A/C that was just installed seems to be
freezing up. I called around 3:30 pm (I got up around 2 pm) and I got voice
mail. Does that mean I'm going to have to get up at some ungodly hour like
10 am or so just to make sure I get actual human beings at the A/C repair
It also makes it rather … interesting playing the stock market, seeing how
it closes down at 4 pm EST. Supposedly there are “after market” hours but
I haven't seen much evidance of that.
It's not that I'm lazy mind you—it's just that I might have a condition
Delayed Sleep Phase Syndrome.
Don't laugh, it does exist but there are very few doctors that have heard
about it. Sigh.
I also spent the day looking for a stock to invest in as well as updating
the journal entry here.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
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 can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
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
