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.

It was four years ago today that I resigned from my job at Visual Data (who had bought the web design company I worked for a year previously) to start working at Eminet Domain (which I worked at until mid-2000). I just found some draft resignation letters. The first one went:

Tuesday, July 28, 1998

To Whom It May Concern:

Due to the continuing product-aligned reorganization with significant third-wave solutions and the promise of integral new downsizing and nondiscriminatory divisional reshuffling I do hereby give notice that I intend to maximize my unrealized extensive expansion into humanistic revenue-oriented reimbursement into seamless middle-management reassessment and offer to Visual Data my voluntary revenue-oriented solution to the continuing unfulfilled financial promises by releaving you of the ongoing support of my employment at this institution within the coming fortnight.

The other one I liked much better and actually wanted to use:

Tuesday, July 28, 1998

To Whom It May Concern:

Unappreciated and
with a heavy heart,
I hereby resign.

but I was told to write something more traditional, but without the buzzwords of the first draft.

Ah well …

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.
