As if I didn't have enough networking issues, I spent a few hours today trying
to get the Windows box to mount the drive in my Linux system. It used to
work but suddenly one day it stopped (that was on August 19th—I
haven't bothered to look at the problem until today). I have the latest
version of Samba but it
seems to want a domain server to validate the password but it's the
domain server. I dont' know enough about the Windows networking model (or
file sharing model) to trouble shoot this.
And on a similar note, I'm also having problems with NFS, although it's limited to problems
between Linux 2.0 and Linux 2.4. While I can mount and even transfer files
between the two systems, it pauses and we're not talking about a second or
two—we're talking on the order of minutes here were nothing seems
to happen then bam! the data comes through at once. I've tried
various options when mounting, but the problem never seems to clear up. But
there is no problem with NFS between my two Linux 2.0 systems, so
it might be some compatibility problem between the two.

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
