Between control panels and “Project White Elephant” it may appear that
my new job sucks.
It doesn't really. Aside from the control panels and “Project White
Elephant” the job is quite easy really, and gives me time to do my own
But like my other job (managing several servers) when it sucks it
I'm spending this fine Sunday evening dealing with the current lunacy that is “Project White Elephant.”
The particular lunancy I'm talking about would probably be helped with UCARP but sadly, not only do we not have

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
