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.

The Mysterious Key Ring Separation at IHOP

Gregory invited all at Casa New Jersey out to dinner, so we hopped on over to the local IHOP. After eating we were hanging out in the parking lot talking. As we were talking I was spinning my keychain on my finger (a nervous habit).

About ten minutes go by when The Younger finds something a few feet away from me. “What's this?” he asks, holding up a small key ring with some keys and a grey frob.

I took a look at it when I realized it was part of my keychain! (the grey frob is the key to the server room) It had somehow flew off! How I do not know, given that these are key rings, the type that you have to really force apart to get keys on.

Very strange indeed.

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.
