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.

“Let's Go Shopping!”

Yesterday I mentioned my skepticism of TamPogo because of two reasons:

  1. I can't locate any reliable information about the company;
  2. I can't even browse their store since it wasn't open yet.

The store's “Grand Opening” is supposed to be July 15th. According to the calendar, today is July 15th. And by 4:30pm I would have expected the store to be open.

Ooh look! “Coming Soon. Grand Opening July 15.”

Or is it the case that I have to sign up to shop?

Update on July 16th, 2009

The store has actually opened!

Update at 9:30pm on July 16th, 2009

I've received some strong feedback on this entry for basically making snarkish remarks on a site that hasn't even opened yet. And yes, I admit, this was a cheap shot, given that the Computer Industry has an extensive history of late products.

Why, hello, Mr. Kettle. Nice to meet you. That's some mighty fine crow you have there.

Tasty crow aside, I've also had to make major editing changes to yesterday's entry due to some changes TamPogo has made over the past 24 hours.

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.
