One of these days, I'll get this networking stuff down.
I talked to Dan the Network Engineer about the Riverstone router and it's not the Riverstone that's losing its mind, it's me.
Just because I route outgoing traffic to
172.16.0.0/12 to nowhere on our core router, doesn't mean that incoming traffic “from”
172.16.0.0/12 from “The Outside” (and by “The Outside” I mean, “The Internet At Large”) gets routed to nowhere.
Nope, it gets routed to the destination, which is on the other side of the firewall, which is doing its job and dumping the garbage packets.

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: https://boston.conman.org/, 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
