The Boston Diaries

The ongoing saga of a programmer who doesn't live in Boston, nor does he even like Boston, but yet named his weblog/journal “The Boston Diaries.”

Go figure.

Curiousity got the better of me, so I decided to see just how bad my gratuitous list of people I know had deteriorated.

It's not pretty.


“Oh, where you expecting a page here? 404.”

“We're sorry. The URL you clicked up is no longer in service. Please back up and try your click again. 404.”

“Busy. Busy. Busy. Busy. Busy. Busy. Busy. Busy. 404”

“The URL you have clicked, aitch-tee-tee-pee-colon-slash-slash … has been disconnected. Please back up and try your click again. 404.”

“We don't need no steeeeeking URLs. 404.”

“You step in the stream / but the water has moved on. / This page is not here. 404.”

You know, if only the actual error pages where that amusing.

You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go ahead, I won't bite. I promise.

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:, 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 important.

It is assumed that every brand name, slogan, corporate name, symbol, design element, et cetera mentioned in these pages is a protected and/or trademarked entity, the sole property of its owner(s), and acknowledgement of this status is implied.
