It's been raining all day today.
Which means that the likelyhood of power being restored to Casa New
Jersey today has been reduced to about a thousandfold.
And the phone here at The Company has been ringing off the hook, only
there's this annoying “beep … beep” at the other end. Not sure what
that is, but it's getting about as annoying as the lack of power (okay, I'll
shut up about that now).
I've also concluded that while I'm
not going to participate in this years National Novel Writing Month, I
should however, set the goal of actually writing about my trip to Las Vegas back in July. I
have the layout I want to use. And the notes. And the pictures. But none
of the actual text. I started to write it, back in late July,
early August, but I was approaching the material in a voice not my own and
it really showed (awful … just awful stuff).
So screw it. Write it the way I write (and lately, I'm not very enamored
with the way I write) and get the thing done this month.
Just as soon as I get power back.
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
