The more I play around with Speak Freely the more I like
it. I spent a few hours setting up a UDP proxy
server on my firewall (since the Linux 2.0 kernel doesn't really support
port forwarding as I found out) and while clunky, I can now use Speak Freely
here at the Facility in the Middle of Nowhere.
I then got with wlofie (a friend who lives in Sweden)
to see if he could get it working. He did, but had a bad microphone so we
couldn't talk last night, but he was able to send a sound file using Speak
Freely, so it does work.
going to be exciting, doing this voice over IP thang …

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: 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
