The Boston Diaries

The ongoing saga of a programmer who doesn't live in Boston, nor does he even like Boston, but yet named his weblog/journal “The Boston Diaries.”

Go figure.

Didn't know it was today …

Happy Nobel Prize Day!

Confectioner or fasion designer?

I have my doubts this this remake (via Ceej's black book) of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Johnny Depp is no Gene Wilder and if anything, is … freakier than Wilder's portrayal of the reclusive confectioner; more androgenous—more wacked out fasion designer if you will. The movie also has this wierd Clockwork Orange vibe to it, not in the “ol' ultra-violent in-out in-out” manner, but set-wise, the future as seen through a 60s sensibility (guess that means Charlie will hanging out with his droogs at the milk chocolate bar).

And now I'm earwormed with the music from the preview! Aaaaaaaaaaah! Make it stop!

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:, 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 important.
