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.

No, no, I told you to set the alarm clock!

Ah, nothing like waking up to the sounds of the house alarm going off.

I don't think I ever mentioned the house alarm here at the Facility in the Middle of Nowhere, but we have one. And from what I understood, it was inactive (but for some extra money a month it could be, maybe—never really looked into it). But here it was, this morning, going off like a banshee.

Spring called up The Office to no avail—they didn't know anything about the alarm and were amazed that we had one.

Yes, we have one. A loud one. One that won't shut up.

After a continuous twenty minutes, it finally shut up.

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.
