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's not even the end of September yet …

We were out and about today and The Younger kept insisting upon going to Wal★Mart; I suppose he wanted to buy the toy department (or rather, us to buy him the toy department, it being so close to his birthday and all) so we capitulated and the lot of us (Spring, her father (who came in late yesterday), The Older, The Younger and I) ended up walking into the local Wal★Mart SuperCenter (clearing customs took forever!) only to find the melodious strains of Christmas carols being piped in over the loud speakers and shelves filled with festive Yule-tide decorations.

Words fail me …

It's not even the middle of September and already the Christmas season is upon us …

I guess that's what happens when you enter a Wal★Mart SuperCenter on a Friday the 13th.

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.
