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.

“Orange you glad I didn't say ‘daemon?’”

At The Company Weekly Meeting it was decided that I should stop work on the daemon I'm writing as we have a better way of doing what we're doing (no longer are we trying to get MySQL to notify an external application of updates). I'm not upset at the loss of the work I've done so far since going in I knew this was exploratory programming and thus subject to change.

In other news, Smirk was impressed with the webpage I set up to view IP address allocations, but as all too often with quick written hacks, it too is saddled with feature requests as it lurches its way towards being a major application (in this case, Smirk asked for half a dozen changes, some easy, some not so easy).

Looks like I'll be learning even more JavaScript now.

Obligatory Picture

[It's the most wonderful time of the 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:, 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 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.
