For those that read the LiveJournal feed of this site, I apollogize for sending a flood of entries your way.
It's something I have to remember—that the
<title> element of the RSS feed cannot contain named HTML entities since RSS is messed up that way. I need to use the numeric versions.
What happened is this—I titled an October 7th entry “A Møøse once bit my sister …” and used
øø in the title. The LiveJournal RSS parser rejected the feed because of that. And because of that, my entries since the 7th haven't been showing up.
I just became aware of the situation and fixed the title (by replacing
øø) which means a sudden influx of twelve (or thirteen if this gets in with the current batch) entries.
Sorry about that.

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: 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
