Today's Irregular Webcomic reminds me of an office rule Smirk enforces: all news, irreguardless of how bad it is, has to be stated as good news.
So, for instance, for yesterday's debacle, I would have to state it to Smirk as: “I was able to save ourselves about an hour's worth of electricity, and our main office server is no longer able to be hacked at all!”
Always look on the bright side of life and all that.
Speaking of bright sides, starting today I get to work mostly from home. Smirk has finally gotten the phone system straightened out, and is forwarding the office lines to whomever is on shift at the moment. And the office phone is working out quite well.
At least now it'll be easier for me to make it to work on time.

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
