At some arbitrary point in time we slip into a new year and
thus ends the obligatory “See you next year!” jokes for approximately 360
We also, at this arbitrary point in time, make promises to ourselves to
improve this, change that, and to stop doing the other. Such self dellusion
usually ends in another 40 days or so as time marches on.
We also hope that the following 365 days, six hours, mine minutes and
nine seconds (or 365 days, five hours, 48 minutes and 45 seconds, or 365
days, six hours, 13 minutes and 52 seconds, depending upon how one defines
the term “year”) will be much better than the previous 365 days, six
hours, mine minutes and nine seconds (or 365 days, five hours, 48 minutes
and 45 seconds, or 365 days, six hours, 13 minutes and 52 seconds, depending
upon how one defines the term “year”).
So much hopes and dreams and schemes pinned on the flipping of a single
second at some arbitrary point in time.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!

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
