Bunny and I were in Indiantown for her Mom's birthday. While there, we headed off to the local Radio Shack to buy a blank CD to test the CD writer in her Mom's computer.
It was not your typical Radio Shack, unless I missed the memo and they've merged with an auto parts store recently. It was very odd, seeing overpriced audio cables next to overpriced jumper cables.
“Are you on the way back to Boca Raton?” asked Smirk.
“Not yet. Why?”
“Well, can you stop by The Data Center on the way home? There's a box there that needs rebooting.”
“Okay,” I said and hung up.
So that's how I found myself standing in The Data Center at 11:45pm waiting for a recalcitrant box to finish running
fsck. It may be a fast box, but the drives are either ridiculously huge, ludicrously slow, or both.
And there's only so much web browsing one can do at the command line.

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: 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
