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.

By now it's probably all over the place that SixApart sold LiveJournal to a Russian company and there's been a lot of commentary over the move, both apprehensive and negative.

I don't really have a stake in this horse, seeing how I run my own site and everything, but I do have to wonder—would SUP (owners of LiveJournal and supporter of Putin) censor posts (or even accounts) that said stuff like “Putin is a lying, corrupt scumbag politician who should be thrown into jail, much like he's done to his opponents.”? Not terribly far-fetched if you ask me.

Granted, it may be the Russian government wanted control of the Russian LiveJournal, but sometimes, it pays to be prudent.

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.
