A while ago Spring setup a syndicated feed
for The Boston Diaries at Livejournal. So if you have a
LiveJournal account you can add my blatherings to your friend's page.
Hey, it's what my feed is for, right?
But I've noticed, through some experimentation, that LiveJournal does not keep
the entries around for all of eternity (or as long as it's in service), but
will delete them as soon as the entries fall out of the feed file. This, I
can't fault them for, since why should they keep copies of this? And since
they get rid of the entries as soon as they are no longer in the feed, any
comments posted to the LiveJournal syndication are deleted along with the
entry itself from LiveJournal.
So, you make a comment to my feed at
LiveJournal, it won't surivive forever.
Which explains why I sometimes quote
comments made there here.
Just letting you guys know …

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
