Given recent developments with my current provider, I think it is prudent to
move away from them, which is really a pain (given that currently, they
provide service to me gratis). I had originally thought the connection part
would be hard to handle and I didn't really worry about my colocated server
(a 33MHz 486SX with a ridiculous 17G harddrive).
On second thought, I may find it difficult to handle both the colocation and
connectivity issues. Connectivity only because of price (of ISDN, I already
have the circuit so I don't have to wait for that to be installed) or type
of service (I can get DSL, but I've heard horror stories about isanely long
wait times for it to be installed incorrectly, let alone correctly).
But the colocation may prove to be a bit tougher. I have plenty of options
if I want to use a current webserver, but the problem there is the rather
specific nature of my current Apache configuration (seeing how I have a
wrote in there, along with some
email options and a couple of mailing lists.
Moving all that to a new server will be a pain.
Ideally, I'd like to drop the server somewhere and avoid having to
reconfigure a webserver, five sites, four mailing lists and one special
email address. But I may have to (remember, always mount a scratch monkey).

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
