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.

An army of Sean

MyFaceSpaceBook apparently makes profile pages—a short link to your page on MyFaceSpaceBook. So I tried http://www.facebook.com/sean.conner and … oh … unless I have a really deep tan, that isn't me. I then tried http://www.facebook.com/sean.patrick.conner and … um … closer, but still not quite me.

I'm not even on the first page of results.

Online in one form or another since 1987, and I'm failing at MyFaceSpaceBook.

Sigh. [Hey you kids! Get off my lawn!]

I ended up with http://www.facebook.com/spc476, which at least matches my ID across several other websites.


Only 25 days to Vegas? Sign me up!

On the advice of his attorney, my friend Hoade hocked his wife's three cats and the silverware to buy a cherry red Chevy Impala convertable and is threatening to kidnap me on a wild road trip to Viva Lost Wages. I was curious as to route we might take when I noticed that Google Maps offered walking directions.

How very amusing.

But the 358 steps in walking to Vegas pale in comparison to the 1,008 steps in biking to Viva Lost Wages.

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: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are interested in, say 2000/08/01, so that would make the final URL:

http://boston.conman.org/2000/08/01

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.
