Yeah, it's been awhile. I just haven't felt like posting since … oh
… it's been since early January.
Work at The Corporation has been a series of long periods of intense
bordom punctuated by short bursts of sheer terror (in other words—“hurry
up and wait!”) as we've been going through a testing phase (more on that
later). Meanwhile, my current private “project du jour” is dealing with email. More specifically, working
slowly towards indexing a rather large archive of email I've collected over
the past fifteen years (and more on that later as well).
Also, Hoade and his lovely wife Ann survived the
terrible tornadoe that ripped through Tuscaloosa a few days ago with
nary a scratch. Their house, however, did not survive (much
like large portions of Tuscaloosa didn't survive). He's also coming
down to Lower Sheol to visit; his plans made a few days before he and Ann
lost their house. The plans are still on and it'll be nice to see him again
without falling into a cactus

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: 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
