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.

Angels & Demons

Bunny and I saw “Angels and Demons” tonight, and I must say, it was way more enjoyable than the book, mainly because the movie excised some of the sillier aspects of the book, like the harrowing helicopter ride (and if you've read the book, you know of which I speak)and the death of the evil henchmen is handled better.

Oh, and no X-33 airplane (thankfully).

The backstory of the recently deceased Pope was removed, which was one aspect of the book I found interesting, but I can see why it was cut for the movie—simply no time to delve into it.

Overall, I enjoyed the movie way more then the book.

Then again, the book felt like a rought draft of a movie anyway.

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.
