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.

I got a great laugh out of this. Thank you for being so awesome.

—Tom Morris, chairman of the Miami Hamfest / Tropical Hamboree

I'm looking at this email, wondering what is this person talking about? Is this some type of spam? That's the entire email. But no, it turns out that Tom Morris is the Chairman of the Miami Hamfest and he was commenting on a comment I made eleven years ago (and it's been seven years since I last attended the Miami Hamfest).

But next year's show looks to be interesting, what with part of the emphasis on “alternative energy” and my interest in fringe science (I find it facinating, not necessarily because I believe in it but because I find it highly amusing). I'll have to check it out next year.

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.

It is assumed that every brand name, slogan, corporate name, symbol, design element, et cetera mentioned in these pages is a protected and/or trademarked entity, the sole property of its owner(s), and acknowledgement of this status is implied.
