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 aliens! I's seen them!

It's getting to the point where the story behind the Photo Friday image is more interesting than the image itself.

Again, I was at a loss for what to do for current challenge when I saw this septic truck in the supermarket parking lot (I was there picking up two gallons of milk to make up for the two gallons I poured down the sink on Wednesday—don't ask—like I said, it was a bad week) and the coiled up hose was good enough for the theme of “curves.”

So I walk up close and start taking pictures. That's when I notice this small view port on the tank. Looking closer, there were things moving along the inside.

[The Viewport] ['Twas brillig, and the slithy toves] [Did gyre and gimble in the wabe]

Fast moving things!

Disturbing things!

When I showed Spring the images, she said she could have gone a whole lifetime without seeing those images.

Couldn't we all?

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.
