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.

No, seriously, the bugs start coming and they don't stop coming

One of the links on this entry won't work on gopher or Gemini. That's because I haven't implemented a very important feature from the web version of my blog—linking to an arbitrary portion of time! I don't even think that link will work on gopher or Gemini either, because of the way I “translate” links when generating the text from HTML.

HTML-to-text translation is hard, let's go shopping—oh, wait … I can't because of CODIV-19!

Sigh.

Update a few moments later …

Not all links break on Gemini.

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.
