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.

Merry Christmas and all that jazz

It was a quiet, laid back day today. Many presents were exchanged (and the “Most Amusing Present” goes to my friend Hoade who sent me I Could Tell You But Then You Would Have To Be Destroyed By Me: Emblems From The Pentagon's Black World, which are military patches for top secret projects and yes, Area 51 is referenced quite often, although the most amusing patch (to me) is a blank black patch, with the text, in black on black letters along the top “IF I TELL YOU” and in black on black letters cross the bottom, “I HAVE TO KILL YOU”—I tell you, it's comedy gold) and much food was eaten.

This evening, Bunny, her mom and I then drove around to look at the various souls spending what's left of their money in electrical bills.

[A million points of light]

Very pretty, but very expensive no doubt. Not even the cities are doing anything this extravagant this year.

Other than that, I wish all my readers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

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.
