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.

More enlightened palms

Mark, JeffK and I met to take even more pictures of enlightened palms. Driving around looking for a good place to photograph, we came across a small park just south of Mizner Park (a shopping center) in Boca Raton. We parked the car about a block away and I proceeded to take numerous pictures. In the middle was an interesting abstract sculpture that was a nice focal point to some of the photographs. While we were there, Kelly called and we convinved him to drive out and meet us.

After a few hours, we decided to move on and as we drove past Mizner Park itself, we realized it was a terrific place to take pictures. By then I had run out of battery power, so Kelly and I went off to a local 7-11 to get more batteries while Mark and JeffK waited at Mizner Park for our return. As we drove back, a security guard started following us, so we decided it wasn't worth the possible problems; it was after 1:00 am and Mizner Park is considered private property. At this point, Mark and Jeff felt it was late enough and since they had to work the next morning, decided to bail out. Kelly and I continued driving around, but there weren't any places as impressive as Mizner Park, although I did take quite a few pictures from the front seat.

Around 3:30 am Kelly and I were both hungry, so we drove to a diner he knew of in Ft. Lauderdale; it looked closed as we drove up to it, but it turned out that the signage was being worked on. Afterwards Kelly dropped me off, then he himself went home.


Those crazy Canadians

I finally received the books from AccordionGuy and those crazy Canucks, using duct tape and foreign newspapers to wrap packages.

So now it's time to hunker down and learn all there is about genetic algorithms, Lisp (both Scheme and Common Lisp) and Rebol. Fun fun fun.

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.
