On Wednesday of next week,
at two minutes and three seconds after 1:00
in the morning,
the time and date will be
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
instead of this crazy backwards US
Also, according to Mark
Evanier, it'll happen once a century and for those of you using
non-military time, it'll happen twice!

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
