Google is being annoying today.
I'm used to doing a search (like, for Miami,
Florida) and being able to copy a link directly from the results page.
Occasionally Google will link to the result through itself, like:
Annoying when it happens, but if I do the search over again, the results
page will have the links going directly to the results, as in:
But not today.
Today, no matter how many times I restart my search, clear the cookies,
click on the munged link or what have you, Google is insistent upon
returning the annoying links that are useless to blogging. And to make
bar at the bottom of the browser (in Firefox,
hoving over a link will show the URL in the status bar) so it's not readily
apparent what's going on.
Come on Google, cut it out! You, of all companies, are supposed to be
above such things …
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: 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
