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.

Happy New Year!

Oh, it does appear that it is some sort of holiday today, something about it being a new year or some such silliness. Of course everyday is the start of a new year! For it was a year ago that it was the same date! Well, except for February 24th, which comes around once every four years, except on the other three years when it appears yearly.

Yes, there will be a test on this.

In other news, to show just how much of a geek I am, one of the things I did today was telnet to an actual IBM PCjr, complete with ISA network card and custom TCP/IP network stack.

How cool is that?

And no, this will not be on the test.

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.
