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.

A little bit of urban exploration

There's a building under contruction along I-95 just south of Lantana Blvd. that Spring was interested in checking out, although it's still under construction and access to the site is rather restricted.

[The building in question]

In order to get around this restriction, we felt it would be easier to walk along the traintracks and approach the site from the east. Once the Tri-Rail trains passed, we proceeded south along the tracks.

[Heading south along the tracks]

Unfortunately, the vegetation along between the tracks and the building in question was too thick to tromp through, and we neglected to bring any form of machette with which to forge a trail. And the one trail we did find had evidence of a homeless homestead and not wanting to provoke any confrontation, we left the area.

We never did learn what the building was being built for.

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.
