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.

Good thing I'm authorized to receive email for the addressee, otherwise I wouldn't be able to post this TOP SECRET information that is “building a MAJOR stur within the ‘make money’ online community.”

Please.

But I must say, the amount of snail mail I've received since registering a domain has been staggering. While on vacation, I received a 660 page catalog of office supplies from ULine among other junk mail, all presupposing I must be running a business because why else would I register a domain?

Well … it's their dime. Let them waste their money on me. Oh wait … did I just give them some page rank? D'oh!


“Space is big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist, but that's just peanuts to space.”

From Flutterby comes this video of traversing our Solar System at the speed of light. It's only (only!) 45 minutes long, and you want to know how far you get in just 45 minutes?

A bit past Jupiter (oddly enough, it also takes about 45 minutes to get a bit past Jupiter from Chez Boca—fancy that).

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.
