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.

More reasons to use VoIP

Smirk finally read the entry about cell phones vs. VoIP and gave me five reasons for using it over a cell phone:

  1. It saves me from wasting my minutes on my cell phone—or rather, it saves my other boss cell phone minutes since he pays for the cell phone.
  2. We get unlimited local calling and the international rates are cheap (which is important to us since we have a few international customers).
  3. Once we transfer the tech support lines to the new number, it will always follow us no matter which network we plug the VoIP unit into.
  4. Because it's cool!
  5. Because Smirk wants to keep me awake at night with the bright lights on the unit.

So, now I know.

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.
