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.

Strawberry rocks forever

[It's the modern version of a strawberry field …]

Several days ago Bunny, her brother and mother went to a “u-pick” farm that had what appeared to be acres of hydroponically grown strawberries ripe for the picking. And pick they did.

[Just a small sampling of the spoils]

So we're drowning in strawberries here at Chez Boca, wondering what to do with all these darned strawberries. That's when I remembered Alton Brown freezing them using dry ice. So Bunny got a five pound slab of the material, and an hour later, we have a ton of strawberry rocks, ready for the deep chill.

[Red as a strawberry, hard as a rock]

It's so neat living in the future …

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.
