I've always spelled my name “S,” “e,” “a,” “n.”
Have been all my life,
and I've been under the mistaken thought that that was the proper spelling of “Sean.”
But it turns out,
the proper Irish spelling is,
“Seán” if this video is anything to go by.
I learned that Sean Connery was not in fact the first actor to portray James Bond.
that honor goes to American actor Barry Nelson
(who played the spy in 1954!).
Sean Connery is not the second actor to portray James Bond either—that goes to
South African actor Bob Holness who played the spy in 1957
(for a radio dramatization of Moonraker).
So that makes Sean Connery the third actor to portray James Bond.

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 can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day

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
