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.

Gobble gobble!

My Dad sent me the following recipe for Thanksgiving turkey:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Brush Turkey well with melted butter, salt and pepper.
  3. Fill cavity with stuffing and popcorn.
  4. Place in baking pan with the neck end toward the back of oven.
  5. Listen for popping sounds.
  6. When the Turkey's rear end blows the oven door open and the Turkey flies across the room, it's done.

It's a traditional recipe when anybody who is anybody these days knows that you brine the sucker first and don't stuff it (although I might do the popcorn thang).

So I'm off to brine the bird …

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.
