Numbers stations, it seems, have made the leap to the web (link via Wil Wheaton). Intrigued by the idea, I came up with my own “numbers station”—№ 9. Oddly enough, it took longer for me to find a suitable image for the banner than it did to program the site (and I ended up taking a picture of my own computer screen, and color correcting the text from white on black to green on black, which was easier than trying to find out how to get the text to be green in the first place).
And yes, the numbers do have meaning.
But no, I won't tell you.

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
