HVU:B1 from AOL
Don't be terribly surprised if email for website that is normally
forwarded to AOL stops showing up. Especially if you
complain about spam. Because spam can come not only directly to your AOL account, but indirectly, through your
website's email server. And AOL,
responding to your complaint, will block all the servers that were
responsible for handing the spam, including your website's email server.
And don't be terribly surprised if your webhosting company can't remedy
the situation immediately. Think the wait time for calling technical support
at your webhosting company is long? This is AOL—they handle billions of email daily. And probably
receive millions of complaints daily.
So if you use AOL, and have email from
your website forwarded, before reporting that spam, please think about where
it might have come from. You may end up without email at all!

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
