The Boston Diaries

The ongoing saga of a programmer who doesn't live in Boston, nor does he even like Boston, but yet named his weblog/journal “The Boston Diaries.”

Go figure.

I guess it's the train wreck syndrome at work

I came across something I wanted to link to today, but I had to get caught up first.

By the time I got caught up, I forgot what I wanted to link to.

But then I found it again:

I didn't really understand the parody in Lost in Translation until I saw the real Tara. At one point she's riding through Europe on a Gondola, explaining Sex in the City references as if she were some kind of tour guide.

I found myself unconsciously picking out sniper positions in the surrounding buildings. This … this is why people hate America.

Tara Reid ate my soul

I guess since the United States does not have an aristrocratic class to make fun of, we have to make do with what we got (and frankly, it's pretty pathetic).

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:, 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 important.

It is assumed that every brand name, slogan, corporate name, symbol, design element, et cetera mentioned in these pages is a protected and/or trademarked entity, the sole property of its owner(s), and acknowledgement of this status is implied.
