I'm watching the Discovery Channel
and I see these new
commercials they have advertising themselves (and their website). They're
great! Cheesy costumes, bad acting and non-existant special effects. I
really found the one with the meteorite one very funny.
- 1ST METEORITE:
- [monotone voice] I learned that most meteorites burn up in the Earth's
atmosphere. [All burst into flames]
- 2ND METEORITE:
- [also monotone voice] Ah. Atmosphere. Ah.
- 1ST METEORITE:
- Ah. Atmosphere.
Very funny stuff.
Reading the Slashdot
thread on networking via electrical outlets
there was mention of the
which allows data transfer over existing electrical
wiring and apparently available at CompUSA
and other like stores. It's a
bit late to head over to CompUSA, but tomarrow I'll see if I can pick it up
if it's cheap enough. At 300kbps it won't be fast, but it's fast enough for
what I want to use it for.

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
