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.

Yes, it's still up and running

I received email from XXXXXXXXXXX asking when I'm going to remove an entry where I mention him. I'm not sure if he doesn't like the clarification I made on that page, just doesn't like being mentioned at all, or hates the fact that said entry is the third result you get when searching on his name, or a combination of all three. I do not want to remove the entry; after all, this is my space here, but yet he didn't exactly ask to be mentioned here.

So I removed all mention of him from the entry. It will, however, take some time for Google (or any other search engine) to reindex said entry.

I did, however, check the logs for 2003 and as far as I can tell, no one looking for XXXXXXXXXXX has hit the entry in question. Not one hit! Yes, several hits from search engines indexing my site, but not one live person. So I don't think XXXXXXXXXXX has anything to worry about.

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.
