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.

Musical links

I have a few links for Bunny. The first is an alternative piano keyboard layout (link via Microclesia) that to me, would seem to make piano playing easier, as each scale is played in an identical manner, instead of having to learn a dozen different fingerings.

The second one is this unique musical visualization of jazz music (link also via Microclesia). I personally have a hard time “hearing” music when looking at its printed representation, so I find these visualizations helping in “seeing” music.

It's actually quite amusing—I saved a link to the laptop orchestra that my dad sent me over four years ago (yes, I have quite the backlog) that now, I just don't find all that interesting (and I don't think Bunny would find interesting either) but the following posts from that blog I found extremely interesting.

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.
