60% of my fav links from 10 yrs ago are 404. I wonder if Library of Congress expects 60% of their collection to go up in smoke every decade.
I've been afraid of searching all past links on my blog to see how many are dead or no longer point to the page I linked to.
Several years ago I replaced the link on my very first post and I'm sad to say,
the link on my second post is now dead
(and the page it now leads to is nothing more than a missing image—sigh).
it's quite painful going through the first month and seeing just how many links are now dead.

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
