You know, I'm thinking that maybe I should start reading journals in a
different way. I should assume that they're all fiction. After all, I never
write Scarlett O'Hara or Buttercup or Rincewind to tell them what they're
doing wrong or to offer advice.
So all of you are fictional characters, and if I meet any of the journal
page authors in real life, I can think “Hey, that's the woman on which the
main character in `Bad
Hair Days' is based. Cool.” I won't feel like I have some sort of
bizarre one-sided relationship where I know all sorts of things about you.
We start from scratch, but as Columbine said somewhere
else, with the equivalent of a letter of introduction.

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
