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.

More Matrix Madness

I arrived at Jeff's house just in time to see the end of The Matrix (and just as I suspected, they had all seen Matrix Reloaded). It was then that Jeff mentioned an interesting bit of trivia between the two films. In Matrix Reloaded, Neo meets with The Architect, the supposed creator of the Matrix, in an office filled with TV monitors, filled with images of Neo. But this isn't the first time that Neo has been through this office. In The Matrix, just after Neo has been arrested by Agent Smith and taken into custody, he's being escourted to an interrogation room and passes through a room filled with TV monitors filled with images of himself!

Curious indeed …

Update on Wednesday, May 21st, 2003

Just a clarification from Jeff (via email):

Just a clarification. The scene I was talking about had us as the audience in the Architect's office. We see Neo and the Agents in the interrogation room. We then pass through the screen into the room.

It having been a while since I've seen the film, and having missed seeing it at Jeff's, my memory was a bit hazy …

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.
