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.

Signing our lives away

Rob and I head over to the rental community to sign some twenty-two pages of rental agreements. The process is simple—they hand Rob the page and explain what this page is for. Rob scans it, then signs and dates it. He then hands it to me, I scan, sign and date it and place it to one side.

Page after page. Twenty-two pages. Listen, scan, sign, date, hand, scan, sign, date, place. The only real pause is Rob making sure he can park his hearse in the parking lot. Unlike the last time he asked, it was decided that he could park it in the rental office parking lot (which is across the street from our building, so it's not that far). Rob was satisfied with that, and we continued with signing.

We then did a tour of the actual unit, filling out “Move-in Inventory & Condition Form” (which we have three days to finish and turn in) and discussing ideas of where to set up the new Computer Room (I prefer a room dedicated for this, Spring wants to set it up in a more public area of the house. Rob doesn't care where it is).

I'm still overwhelmed at how fast things are moving.

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.

It is assumed that every brand name, slogan, corporate name, symbol, design element, et cetera mentioned in these pages is a protected and/or trademarked entity, the sole property of its owner(s), and acknowledgement of this status is implied.
