Ah, Debtember 1st!
Time once again for missing National Novel Generation Month.
I never did come up with decent idea for a generated novel.
And I never did get around to doing that English As She Is Spoke idea.
I could have written a program to write the word “meow” 50,000 times,
and while it's within the letter of the rules it does feel like cheating.
this year's submissions were not up to the caliber of
last year's submissions.
Perhaps the idea of computer generated novels has run its course?
There's always next year.
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:
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
