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.

“But it'll be in color!”

I just discovered that the Hallmark Channel is showing M*A*S*H (final episode) which started at 10 p.m. Even if I didn't already have it on tape, I could have taped it for you. You were meant to see it, and I'm pleased to be the one to show it to you.

Guess I'm finally going to see the final M.A.S.H episode afterall.

One funny story about M.A.S.H.—growing up all we had was a small black-and-white TV, so all of my M.A.S.H. viewing was on said set. On the few occasions I've seen M.A.S.H. in color, it just looks … funny. It just … looks weird to me to see M.A.S.H. in color.

And that's the only show that I find weird looking in color. Perhaps because even in color, it's still fairly monochromatic, even if that monochromatic color is green.

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.
