So once again I threw myself into work
trying not too hard to think about the impending move. I informed my
contact that what I attempted didn't work, so the format was
simplified—all I had to do was generate one summary per page, and he'll
take care of formatting it four per page using a traditional word processor.
Then it was a matter of formatting the output like he wanted, and making
adjustments as I found shortcomings in certain reasonable assumptions I had
made. Nothing horrible, or very difficult.
Pretty mindless, actually.
And as you might be picking up, I'm still a bit freaked about moving.

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
