Now I know why I hate system administration so much.
I've been re-hired by the company that fired me last September to fill in
for their main system admin who is on vacation this week. I should have
started last Thursday, but I still can't seem to shake this cold thang.
So my first day back to the office was today. And already I'm neck deep in
email fires—from SPAM coming from BBN to a failing mail server running
Qmail instead of
Sendmail. Or maybe
it's running both—I have no idea, the previous admin who worked on it no
longer works here and I just found out, I have no account on the machine.
Delving back into the Scary Devil Monastery is always such fun.

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: https://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
