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.

Another mod_blog user …

Over a year since I've publically released the source code to mod_blog and some else is now using the code!

Woo hoo!

Mark finally broke down (or rather, our current society broke him down) and he now has an online journal for which to vent.

I will admit the install process is a bit on the rough side (but then again, I haven't had much feedback on actually using the software and I know the quirks too well to actually remember them to consciously remember them) and I have cleaned up the code a bit (fixed one small bug that only happened if you had fewer than seven days worth of entries, and replacing calls to access() with stat() since it was stat() I should have used in the first place).

And now, I finally get to bug Mark about when he's going to make his next entry …

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.
