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.

… it's around here somewhere …

Spring's father wanted to eat at a steak house tonight. Not a problem if we were still living at Condo Conner or the Facility in the Middle of Nowhere. Having lived in that area for almost twenty years one gets to know the types and locations of a variety of restuarants that can match almost any need.

But here at Casa New Jersey?

Heck, it took me an hour to find the Home Depot that's just around the corner last week. And I've yet to locate an actual branch of my bank (heh—down in north Broward/south Palm Beach counties every other building contains a branch of my bank).

Gary (Spring's father) and I ended up driving for over half an hour looking for a Roadhouse Grill I glimpsed … last week? Yesterday? Somewhere … sometime …

Finally found it next door. I knew it was close by somewhere!

You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go 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:, 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.
