Way back in mid 1999, I had a job prospect up in Boston—a contract job for
six months or so and I figured that if I got the job, I would
maintain a journal so I could keep my friends (and family) up to date. The
name I came up with was, obviously enough, “The Boston Diaries.”
Only I didn't get the job.
But I liked the name, even though I never cared for Boston the few times
I've been there (and each time was in late November—yeah, I sure picked
the right season to visit Boston).
And it's pictures like these that make me glad
I'm not living there.
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:
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
