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.”

This metablogging entry brought to you by the letter B. And by the number 13.

It was a quiet weekend (more like comatoast since I didn't bother to post anything) and even today was rather quiet (well, other than moving websites). I started to write something about string concatenation in Ruby and that if one method is frowned upon, why does it even exist, but I just wasn't in the mood to even bother.

Heck, I havn't been in the mood to post in the past few days.

In other news, I got another testimonial about X-Grey:

So far, NOTHING (spamwise). I don't know what I'm going to do with all this free time not deleting spam! (pause 1.5 hours for work interruption)

heh … Thanks …

plus some other feedback (some small bugs, omissions from the installation documentation). So far, everybody who's used X-Grey has been happy with it.

What next? That the Mona Lisa is really a self portrait?

ROME, Italy (AP)—It's a new Da Vinci code, but this time it could be for real.

An Italian musician and computer technician claims to have uncovered musical notes encoded in Leonardo Da Vinci's “Last Supper,” raising the possibility that the Renaissance genius might have left behind a somber composition to accompany the scene depicted in the 15th-century wall painting.

For Bunny, who likes both music and The Da Vinci Code.

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.
