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.

A grand day out

What can I say about the wedding ceremony? The bride was beautiful. The groom was hansome. The ceremony moving Vows and rings exchanged. Kisses. Crying. Cheering. Photos. It was great!

Okay, I can say a bit more here—the weather forecast for this week was:

Today's forecast of severe thunderstorms and heavy rain was a bit concerning, given that the wedding was held outdoors. While it did rain last night and a bit this morning, by the time of the wedding, it was party cloudy and clearing up. By the time the event was winding down at the Fox Hills Summerhouse Outdoor Venue it was clear skys as far as one could see.

Officiating the ceremony was Jordan's brother Aaron. Yes, the same Aaron who owns a brewery. If it seems odd for a religeous ceremony to be delivered by a beer brewer, think again (although Aaron isn't a monk, he can officate a wedding ceremony).

Not much else to say about today, other than good luck to the bride and groom.


Extreme marquee, Northville, Michigan edition

The other day Bunny and I were strolling through Northville when I saw this marquee:

[A movie theater marquee with “HAPPY BIRTHDAY KEVIN YODER” displayed] Kevin Yoder?  Wasn't he that small green guy in “War Stars” or something?

It appears that one can actually rent the marquee and have your message displayed to all in Northville. I wonder how much it would cost to say “MY HOVERCRAFT IS FULL OF EELS” and how many people would get the reference?

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 important.
