My computer has a rather odd cutout in the front that tends to accumulate
I've noticed recently that it's accumulated a metric buttload of dust
(the shot above is after I've removed quite a bit of it, as shown below).
Even Mark remarked how
dusty it was in there.
So, the problem: how to go about dusting the thing. It was a thick
blanket of dust, and I headed into the garage of Chez Boca thinking I might
find a vacuum with a nozzle attachment that would fit in there when I came
across the perfect solution:
The Lint Roller!
It's really just a very wide roll of masking tape with the sticky side
out. The method is easy: just remove the outer sheet (it's about
6″×4″) and apply it to the dust.
A few lint sheets later and the computer is now dust free.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or

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
