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.

Yea, like he would ever allow it …

I had a rather distrubing dream last night, and one of the disturbing elements (if not the most disturbing) was seeing, on television the latest animated series—Disney's Calvin and Hobbes, done the drawing style of Ted Rall with the feel of Tim Burton's Nightmare on Christmas, only not as lighthearted.

Calvin came across as being a whiny brat (well, more so than in the actual comics) and they didn't even get Hobbes' voice nominally close and the whole dark nature of the show (the opening credits had the family moving to a new house and Calvin imagining the house devouring them) didn't at all jibe with the comic and I was sad that Bill Watterson had either sold out, or lost control of his intellectual property.

Good thing is was just a dream …

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.
