What I thought was going to be a very simple operation of “take the old video card
out, put the new video card in and we're good to go” wasn't. And as
typical of when one problem leads to another problem which leads to yet
another problem, I get very focused while at the same time I get
extremely angry. As the issues pile up, as I'm reading scores of
web pages with conflicting information (that is, when they have an answer out of the
hundreds of pages checked) and I'm building up this huge fragile structure in my mind of everything I've tried, what
I've yet to try, and futher questions to answer—
“What would you like for lunch?”
And it collapses like a house of cards, leaving me to start all over
I'll admit, it can be hard to distinguish between this and
“very focused while working in a program” just prior to the house
of cards collapse, but my response in the former is a primal scream while
the my reponse to the later requires scraping me off the ceiling.

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
