Yesterday on Slashdot,
they had a blurb about
Zeosync's claim of a
compression scheme that supersedes Claude Shannon's work.
I only mention it here because an associate of mine (who will remain
nameless unless otherwise told) not only knows the company, but the company
my associate works for has been contracted to actually implement
the algorithm, which I've been told is so convoluted that even the
scientists at Zeosync are struggling to comprehend. I find that rather
amusing (not so my associate, who, being the head programmer, has to most
likely write the code).
I've also been told it's not a constant 100:1 compression ratio, but that's
the best case you can expect to see.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or

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

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
