The Boston Diaries

The ongoing saga of a programmer who doesn't live in Boston, nor does he even like Boston, but yet named his weblog/journal “The Boston Diaries.”

Go figure.

First Impressions … in Lego

Ever since I did some concept images of the Samurai Administrator using Lego Bricks and Toys, I've been interested in possibly doing a comic strip using the figures. A quick web search revealed that quite a few people have done Lego animations but as far as I can tell, only one strip has been done in Lego, and then only for a week.

You'd think that if people have time to recreate New York City with Lego bricks, that someone would do a comic strip.

None that I could find.

So, I decided to do one myself. Not that I plan on doing this on a regular basis—well, not until I possibly get a larger cast than I current have (about six people, two of which are in convenience store garb, one cop, two regular people and one samurai administrator).

As it was, it took me several hours to do.

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:, 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 important.
