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.

Fake Moon landings and other silliness

The James Randi Educational Foundation is a great site for educating oneself with claims of the paranormal, the supernatural and other outright silliness of the New Age. Just recently, their newsletter pointed to a site that had definitive proof that the moon landings were faked!

Way to go!

And the following week even more proof moon landings were faked.

Incredible stuff.

I'm not hearing you




Complete silence.


Silence, then a nearly inperceptible click.



“Hello? Can you hear me?”


“Hello sir. Is a Mr. or Mrs. Conner there?”


“Can you hear me?”

“Is there anyone here? Hello?”

Another click. ”Hello sir.” Voice has a bit of an echo.


“You still can't hear me?”

“Hello? I'm sorry, I just can't hear you.” I hang up.

I love playing with telemarketer's minds.

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.
