I finally get back into the blogging mode when the server my site (and
email) is on goes offline when its power supply flames out.
It was weird today—I felt lost without access to my server, mainly
because of the loss of my personal email (yes, I still run my own email
server; yes, I'm masochistic like that) but yes, the website being down was
also weighing on me—until yesterday (Monday) I don't think any server my
site has been on has been down for more than three or four hours (oh, there
have been some times recently when the site has been down for over 24 hours
but that's because various processes on the box were inadvertantly killed
and I didn't realize it, but that's different than the actual
server being offline).
But things seem to be back to normal, and I would like to thank the crew
hosting my website for their hard work in getting it back up quicker than I

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
