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.

Brief notes about a surprise birthday party

The original plan was to drive to Blountstown to surprise Joe for his birthday, but due to existent plans his family had, we couldn't do that. Joe then expressed interest in meeting at MegaCon the following week, but we all told him that no one from South Florida would be able to make (in truth, with the help of his wife, planning on meeting him for a surprise birthday party in Orlando).

So at the ungodly hour of 11:00 am, Bunny, Gregory, Kurt, Keith and I started our drive northward. We needed to start out early to ensure we would arrive at the hotel first and set up the decorations and get the cake.

Joe (left) still giddy at our little surprise, even stuffed into the back of a sport utility vehicle with Kurt.

Joe was totally surprised by us, and was rather giddy the entire evening. Just being there was the best gift we could have given him.

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.
