As of this writing (at 2:00 am) I still only have
a valuation of $0.00
over at BlogShares
. The reason for the low
valuation? Because there are no inbound links to my site, which is what the
valuation is based upon.
So when Mark
Pilgrim, who has a valuation
of over $14,000, decided to sponsor
links for a gift of 100 shares I
decided to take him up on the offer, although I should not have
mentioned that he could pick up shares for free (and even he
was surprised that one could “buy” shares for nothing). He's going to
make more money on this than I am.
Which is one reason I don't play in the stock market; I don't
really grok this stuff. Well, that and the fact that the economy is tanked
right now …

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
