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.

Even more brief notes about a store

Again, I got up at some ungodly hour of the morning where we all proceeded to Perkins for breakfast, followed by a trip to the Lego Store.

[And yes, that velociraptor is made out of Lego bricks]

Unfortunately, I did not get any shots inside the store, as I was too busy drooling over all the sets for sale (I was particularly drooling over the Emerald Night Train set), and marvelling at a camera/video display they had set up. You could hold up a box of a kit to the camera, and on the video display, you could see yourself holding up the box, but the system would then add a 3D rendering of the kit on the box you were holding. And as you rotated the box around, the the 3D rendering would rotate with the box (and a few kits were even animated, like the Emerald Night Train).


A few hours there, then we all started the drive back from Orlando.

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.
