Must be some new exploits out there. Mark called and said he found
evidence of someone attempting to break into the co-located box we have. He
would have notified the appropriate parties of the attempt but he wasn't
feeling very well.
I check the logs, and sure enough, there were attempts to break in from
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.birch.net. I then
checked the logs going back a few days and on the 21st I found
more attempts from
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.videotron.ca and yet
more on the 19th from
using similar methods to break in.
None of the attempts succeeded though.
The two from
videotron.ca are probably the same person; I have to
wonder if the one from
birch.net is also the same person?

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
