When we got home from Mark's there was a message on
the answering machine (we got home around 2:30 am):
“Hi, this is Mark. On the way to drop Kelly off where I work, about two miles
from my home, to get his his car,” said Mark, “we saw three unmarked white
vans. Just thought you might want to know.”
I'm telling ya …
You may have noticed some rather odd entries yesturday that are no
longer there. Well, I was testing a bunch of code that allows me to post
entries via email or a web page form. I then had to test code to test a
configuration file (to allow more than one blog on the system) and I'm
finding that the code to generate the RSS file is buggy and misses entries. It has to do with
how I internally store entries.
But aside from that, it's pretty much done now. All that's left now is to
move the programs over to the server, copy the archive over, install
everything, and then it'll be live.
Oh, also expect to see a bunch of new entries for the previous days pop up
at odd times too. I have notes, but I have to actually write the entries.
You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go
ahead, I won't bite. I promise.
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
