Smirk misunderstood an entry I
made last week, thinking that I wanted to keep the Mac mini I was testing for work.
He went ahead and ordered the PS/2 to USB adaptor (and a few extras for the office) so I could use
a real keyboard (along with DoubleCommand since the IBM
keyboards I use don't have Windows keys).
At that point, I figured I was having so much fun with the Mac that I
might as well keep it, seeing how it was below steet price to begin
But that wasn't my intent with the entry. At the time, I was cursing the
keyboard I was using and wishing I could use an IBM PS/2 keyboard. It was
then I decided to search Google for
a “PS/2 to USB adaptor”
and lo'—there it was.
So I really meant: “Ask Google, and ye shall receive.” Not “ask
Smirk, and ye shall keep.”
But I kept the Mac mini anyway.

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
