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.

I knew this would pay off some day

Mark has been suggesting that I download and install Mozilla for Windows for some time now. I've never gotten around to doing it but tonight, I check Rob's LiveJournal and he mentions that the Mozilla just released Mozilla 0.9.9 and that it works flawlessly.

Okay, might as well try it.

I must say I'm impressed.

I'm even more impressed that they seem to actually use the <LINK> tags in the page. Oh my … I've been adding those tags to my pages for years (at least from '97 or '98) and now they might actually be useful.

So far, the only browser that I've seen use those tags has been Lynx, the infamous text based browser. Now it seems they've added support for the <LINK> tag in Mozilla.

But while that is nice, Lynx will use all the tags I've defined, while Mozilla seems to only use a subset. But it's a start.


Site Navigation

I just found out that Mozilla supports the <LINK> tag, but to actually enable it, you need to select “View/Show-Hide/Site Navigation Bar” from the main menu. Now maybe more sites will use the <LINK> tags.

Obligatory Picture

[It's the most wonderful time of the year!]

Obligatory Links

Obligatory Miscellaneous

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: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are interested in, say 2000/08/01, so that would make the final URL:

http://boston.conman.org/2000/08/01

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.
