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.

Happy New Year

It's a war zone out there, what with the rockets' red glare, the explosions, the crazy neighbor attempting to scare off the old year and in the process, scaring in the new year as well as the neighbors. No way I'm going out there in these conditions. Even Murrow would give pause before entering the mæstrom of fire emanating from across the street. No fool, I (or Murrow).

So, from the relative safely of Chez Boca, I bid you Happy New Year.

At least this year we don't have to worry about the world ending in an Emmerichesque orgy of disaster porn or New Age woo-woo mystical nonsense. Thank <insert deity of your choice> for that!

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.
