I got a great laugh out of this. Thank you for being so
—Tom Morris, chairman of the Miami Hamfest / Tropical
I'm looking at this email, wondering what is this person
talking about? Is this some type of spam? That's the
entire email. But no, it turns out that Tom Morris is
the Chairman of the Miami Hamfest and he was commenting on a comment I made eleven years ago (and
it's been seven years since I last
attended the Miami Hamfest).
year's show looks to be interesting, what with part of the emphasis on
“alternative energy” and my interest in fringe science (I find it
facinating, not necessarily because I believe in it but because I find it
highly amusing). I'll have to check it out next year.

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:
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
