It's November 1st and that can only mean one thing: National Novel Writing
Month. But unlike last year where several people I know (and even some
I don't) attempted their hand at a novel, this year I haven't seen much
mention of it—perhaps the global financial meltdown happening at
the same time as the 2008 Presidential Election from Hell That Just
Will Not End has distracted people (or at least, the ones I follow on
the Internet) from it this year.
In other news, October wasn't a very
good month for me (as you may have guessed), and frankly, the less said
about the events of the past 31 days the better. Things didn't go as badly as they could have, but
still, it was a rough month, and I'm finding it hard to get back into the
habit of writing here.
Oh, and just my luck—things
only go downhill from here.
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:
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
