another chord on July 5, 2004, and the final chord in 639 years.

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

links to that entry only. The format for the links are

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
