Two months later and we're still waiting to install updates to “Project: Sippy-Cup”
We were finally given the “okay” this week,
but have twice scrubbed the
launch deployment because … “reasons.”
So there's very little for us (the Call Processing team at the Ft. Lauderdale Office of The Corporation) to do this week.
And because of that,
I've started back to work on a small geometry problem that floated around the office some time last year—find “x”:
I can't be that hard,
All you need to solve it is geometry.
the interior angles of a triangle sum to 180°,
what constitutes congruent triangles,
all that stuff you should have learned in the 10th grade but have probably forgotten by now.
Um … yeah.
Fellow cow-orker T didn't solve it (and took a copy home for his son to work on).
T2 solved it by using trigonometry.
And it took a few hours of hashing it out between myself and R to get a purely geometric solution to it.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or

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 may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the

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
