unit finally arrived! Giddy with excitement, I rip open
the package and start hooking it up. I tell Rob
(my roommate) to call up Velotel
to get the IP
addresses assigned for me (they didn't call me back.
No big deal).
The IDSL unit isn't syncing up. I still don't have my 5 IP
addresses. I think I'm slowly sinking into DSL horror territory.
I call up Velotel and report the problem. They call North Point (who is providing the
actual circuit). North Point is calling Bell South.
And the circuit still isn't syncing up.

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
