I get curious at times. At one point I wanted to register
being my initials and whatnot, but Time Magazine registered that one on July
14, 1994. I've never bothered to ask if I could have it, but I can't
imagine what they're using it for (nothing, as I can tell).
So I decide to check out
spc.org, which seems to be a better domain
for my use anyway. When I tried a few years ago, it was taken but I forgot
who had it. The current owners registered it June 7, 1997. So I might have
gotten it had I been on the ball three years ago, but I wasn't.
They seem to be using
though, so I can't complain there.
And that leaves
spc.net, which was registered to the Special
Products Company on June 22, 1996, and
they seem to be using it
I can't have
conman.com because that is being sit upon by a domain
name speculator company,
But the big surprise is
conman.net. Last time
I checked (a few weeks ago) it was being held by
that doesn't seem to be the case anymore. It is now held by
conner.com is owned by
harddrive manufacturer. Understandable, Conner used to be a well-known
harddrive manufacturer before being bought out by Seagate.
conner.org and conner.net are owned by
organization that gives out email addresses. As of today,
is available as an email address, but at US$9.95/month, I think I'll stick
with what I have.

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
