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.

Captain Napalm's Thermonuclear League of Liberty

Captain Napalm's Thermonuclear League of Liberty

So how do I join and get my very own thermonuclear weapons to play with?

About ten years ago, during one of my site redesigns, I embedded the following in an HTML comment on each page:

Join Captain Napalm's Thermonuclear League of Liberty …
write for details …

That very same comment was even carried over to my blog—go ahead, check the source code and see. I'll wait.


Today was the first time anyone bothered to write about joining Captain Napalm's Thermonuclear League of Liberty (and it was my old roommate Rob who wrote in).

And it's been so long since I added it, I have no idea what exactly to do.

Other than maybe change the comment and see if it takes less than ten years for anyone else to notice.

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.
