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.

Happy New Year

At some arbitrary point in time we slip into a new year and thus ends the obligatory “See you next year!” jokes for approximately 360 days.

We also, at this arbitrary point in time, make promises to ourselves to improve this, change that, and to stop doing the other. Such self dellusion usually ends in another 40 days or so as time marches on.

We also hope that the following 365 days, six hours, mine minutes and nine seconds (or 365 days, five hours, 48 minutes and 45 seconds, or 365 days, six hours, 13 minutes and 52 seconds, depending upon how one defines the term “year”) will be much better than the previous 365 days, six hours, mine minutes and nine seconds (or 365 days, five hours, 48 minutes and 45 seconds, or 365 days, six hours, 13 minutes and 52 seconds, depending upon how one defines the term “year”).

So much hopes and dreams and schemes pinned on the flipping of a single second at some arbitrary point in time.

Anyway …

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Obligatory Links

Obligatory Miscellaneous

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:

http://boston.conman.org/2000/08/01

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.

It is assumed that every brand name, slogan, corporate name, symbol, design element, et cetera mentioned in these pages is a protected and/or trademarked entity, the sole property of its owner(s), and acknowledgement of this status is implied.
