The peristant attack is now
affecting the network where the server is located so two decisions were
made: one, to shut down the site being attacked, and two, reinstall the two servers back in Miami and have the
attacked site being served from there. I had intended to get as much
installed and configured before installing the machines back in Miami, but
the attack has moved the timetable up a bit.
Good thing I had everything I needed installed and had configured the
IP addresses for the machines
(and temporarily set up networking for said IP addresses on my home network).
This does mean that I'll have to get up early tomorrow (ick) and that
I'll be missing The Return of the King (as
Spring and The Kids
are planning on seeing it tomorrow).
On the plus side, these will be billable hours.

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
