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.

More Wiki than a Wiki

I've played around with several WikiWikiWebs (like TwikiK, which I find somewhat clunky, and UseModWiki, which I find okay) but none so far has impressed me more than TiddlyWiki, which has to be the easiest wiki to install—just one file and no web server required.

On the downside, it's just one file and I mean, everything is stored in that one file. It makes the editing of content pretty sweet and rather fast, but I'm guessing that as more content is added, the slower it gets since it all runs in the browser. An interesting twist might be to update content on the server using AJAX, although I'll have to check to see if it's already been done.

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.
