Early last month I received some mail from Verisign
that my domain,
was about to expire.
Yea. It expires in October, you idiots.
I've been meaning to transfer my domain over to Dotster, where the rest of my domains are
registered. About two weeks ago I figure it was time. So I put in the
transfer request and the credit card information to pay for it.
Only a day or so later, I lost the credit card. I cancelled that one and
had a new one issued, but it took quite a while before I got the new card
(partly because the mailing address is separate from where I currently live
and that mail box is checked about once a week). So during that time,
Dotster kept attempting to charge the cancelled card.
Every single day.
Gee, you'd think that after three or so attempts they would just cancel the
transfer but I guess not.
But once I cleared up that snafu the transfer completed without problem and I no longer
have to deal with Verisign or Network Pollutions.

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:
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
