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.

“NPA” seems to be a popular party these days …

I received the sample ballot in the mail today (okay, technically yesterday but I'm still in “today” mode) and I'm excited to see all the non-Republican/non-Democratic candidates in the eight races I can vote in on November 2nd. There are eight Republicans, eight Democrats (figures the Republicans would have a .com and the Democrats a .org), one Libertarian (Alex Snitker), one Constitutional Party of Florida (Bernie DeCastro), one for the Tea Party (Ira Chester), two Independance Party candidates (Peter Allen and his running mate John Zanni) and fifteen (count them, fifteen) non-party-affiliated candidates.

I find that wonderful for some reason.

Do I really expect the non-Republicans/non-Democrats to win?

Not really, but a guy can hope, right?

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.
