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.

It'll never happen again, unless it does happen again …

From: Dad <XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX>
To: The Kid <sean@conman.org>
Subject: SOMETHING THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN …
Date: Mon, 3 Apr 2006 03:02:06 EDT

On Wednesday of next week,

at two minutes and three seconds after 1:00
in the morning,
the time and date will be
01:02:03 04/05/06!

That won't ever happen again.

Hate to say this Dad, but it will happen again, next month, in Europe, when it will be 01:02:03 04/05/06 (they print dates DD/MM/YY instead of this crazy backwards US way of MM/DD/YY).

Also, according to Mark Evanier, it'll happen once a century and for those of you using non-military time, it'll happen twice!

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.
