My roommate Rob
was watching me make all these calls with amusement. Since we're all
computer geeks we usually tend not
to keep such early hours but I
figure that since this is a once-a-year event, it's not that
We finally got the plans worked out. Kelly would drive down with his Dad,
and Mark, JeffK, Rob and I would meet at my house and we'd drive down.
Around 11:00 am Mark and JeffK arrive. We pile into my car (it being both
te cleanest and the largest) and after a short stop by an ATM and gas
station, we start the hourish long drive to west Miami.
We got off at the wrong exit, getting off at 41ST St. instead of
U.S. 41, but we were only detoured for less than a minute. And as it turned
out, we were only a few blocks north of our intended exit anyway. As we
neared the fair grounds, Kelly called, saying there were good parking spots
in the second row.
We pulled in, found a close parking spot and met Kelly and his Dad just
outside the fairgrounds. There was some confusion at the ticket stand as a
rumor spread that the booth had run out of dollar bills so we were trying to
figure out a way to pay for all our tickets with a exact change. But it
turned out that the rumor was just that—a rumor. We all got in with
change and proceeded inside.

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

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
