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.

“If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine”

Of all the lightsaber duels in the Star Wars movies, the one in “Star Wars: Episode IV—A New Hope is probably the most sedate. But that's okay, because in 1977 this is the first time we're seeing freaking lightsabers! So cool! And it blew my 8-year old mind at the time.

But this reimagining of that fight? (link via Kirk Israel)

[Do you know just how painful it is to fall into a lava pit?  Do you?]

Had I seen that as an 8-year old, my head would have exploded!

[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.
