I walk into the Computer Room with a few Thin Mint Girl
Scout Cookies (thinking ahead last January, I bought a gross and froze
them). Spring had
the look of a predator sizing up some unfamiliar prey; she's been following
the Atkins Diet and I
could see her trying to calculate the carbohydrates.
“Do you want some?” I asked, munching on a Thin Mint Girl Scout
“That's a trick question,” she said. She wanted some, but didn't
know if she could have them.
“Hold on,” I said. I went back to the freezer, pulled out a box. Serving
size: 4 cookies. Total carbohydrates: 20g. “Five grams per cookie,” I
said, putting the box back in the freezer.
“I'll take four!”
Heh. No one can resist Girl Scout cookies.

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
