I just got a call from Chuck,
whom I used to work
with. It seems he needs to recompile a program I wrote years ago to a new
platform but alas, he can't find all
the source code to it.
Specificially, he can't find the source code to a library I wrote it links
So I checked my system here. I'm surprised I don't have a copy of the
library source code around. Granted, it's a very old version of a library
I'm still working on, but I thought I would have had a copy of it.
I search around and find a 300M compressed archive of everything I had on
the old development machine I did the coding on.
No luck there either!
You might think this is an isolated incident, but it's not. It happened to
us once before years ago where we lost all the source code to a
client's project. It happens. Code slips through the cracks.

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
