In celebration of Lucia, Wlofie made the
traditional lussekatter, a
sweet bread made with saffron (which
costs about ¼ the price of gold—yes, it's expensive stuff, but you
don't need much). I think I enjoyed the lussekatter more than the
cake I made the other day.
I spent way too much time last night tring to get ImageMagick installed
on my Mac mini. I compiled and installed the latest version, but each time
I tried using it, I kept getting:
convert: no decode delegate for this image format (jpeg)
search on the error didn't prove anything conclusive. Even installing
an older version didn't work (same error). The binary install of
ImageMagick was useless as that's for
Tiger, and apparently, I
Panther (gee, what ever
happened to things like version 10.4 or 10.3?).
Eventually, I was able to find a package I could
install, but by then several hours had passed, and all I wanted to do
was resize some pictures.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or

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

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the

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
