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.

Notes from a catered lunch on the eighth floor

To help celebrate the Holiday Season™, The Corporation decided to cater our lunch today. The catering company selected saw that The Ft. Lauderdale Office (which has since moved to a new location), on the 8th floor, has a sizable patio and felt it would be nice to serve our lunch on the patio.

[An 8th Floor Patio]

The picture is of our patio from the ground floor. At the top of the section of building on the right hand side is our patio. It's sizable. And did I mention it's on the 8th floor?

Because the weather today was a bit blustery. Blustery enough that at the 8th floor, setting up a tent was not a good idea.

[Yup, it blew off the patio]

The wind picked it up and pitched it over the side like a piece of tissue. Fortunately, no one was hurt, and the only damage sustained was to the tent itself from its short flight.

We ate lunch inside The Ft. Lauderdale Office, and not on The Patio of the Ft. Lauderdale Office.

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.
