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.

I'll find out just how good the next George Lucas film is tonight

The general opinion of “Revenge of the Sith” seems to be that it marks a distinct improvement on the last two episodes, “The Phantom Menace” and “Attack of the Clones.” True, but only in the same way that dying from natural causes is preferable to crucifixion.

Via too many sites to mention, “St ar Wars: Episode III.”

Ah, Star Wars.

And George Lucas bashing.

Just like in May 1999 when Smirk treated the entire office to Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, he is once again taking the entire office (although this time around it's a much smaller office) to see Star Wars: The Revenge of the Sith—the midnight showing tonight (well, technically, tomorrow morning).

I've written quite a bit on Star Wars in the past (and my friend Hoade and I have gone on for hours about the films and how Luke should have fallen to the Dark Side and Han (WHO SHOT FIRST! … ahem) should have been the next Jedi Knight; from cynic to believer in three films), but now … I don't think I can even muster the energy to write about it (and it's not because of the previous entry—but because I feel George Lucas blew the whole story arc). I know Smirk is really looking forward to “Revenge of the Sith,” and from the previews I've seen, it looks good.

But then again, previews are supposed to look good.

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.
