Last night Spring expressed her dismay at the general
clutter about the house and how she can't stand being in many of the
rooms and the lack of workspace at The
Kids' computer (since her computer is still in the shop). We discussed
for over an hour different ways of arranging the living room and dining room
to make some more space and by the time we headed off to bed, the best we
could come up with was moving some bookshelves to the opposite wall and
shoving the desk with The Kids' computer up against the wall, instead of
perpendicular as it was.
Upon going downstairs this afternoon I saw that Spring had a real
brainstorm and she managed to rearrange nearly the entire living room/dining
room area, giving more room for the computer area. The bookshelves are on
the opposite side of the room, but instead of blocking the sliding glass
doors (which my idea would have) they instead form a short partitioning wall
between the living room and dining room; the long white couch and comfy
chair swapped places and the desk is now against the wall, along with a
small folding table, giving plenty of work space.
It looks completely different, yet it's still functional.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or

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 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
