Okay, now I'm concerned. I'm now running the production greylist daemon on an actual server (not a virtual
server) with the checkpointing feature
enabled, and it's working. That can mean one of two things:
- There's a bug in the virtual server environment that my program
- There's a bug lurking in my code that the virtual server environment
Neither one is good, and it's bugging me that I don't know which is the
case. But I managed to at least work around the problem in the meantime
(now watch—the bug is in my code, but it's the virtual server environment
that causes the bug to surface after a few hours instead of a week or so it
might take on a physical server).

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
