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.

“And together, they must save Elvis from the Illinois Nazis.”

It was a pretty crummy day today, both at work and at the weekly D&D game. To calm down, I spent a few hours updating The Quick And Dirty B-Movie Plot Generator. Besides the cosmetic change (and boy, did it ever need that) I also fixed the gender pronoun problem it had.

And hey, since it's one of the few pages that gets a few hundred hits a month, I decided to see if some advertising on that page might bring in a few more shekels.

And yes, the entire thing is written in C. Nothing better to calm me down than writing a web-based program in a langauge totally ill-suited for writing web-based programs.

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.
