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 have a sad story to tell you, it might hurt your feelings a bit

Bunny and I found ourselves at The Rock Steady Jamaican Bistro in Boca Raton for dinner. An early dinner. Or a late lunch. Or a very late brunch. Dunch, if you will.

So we were eating dunch at The Rock Steady Jamaican Bistro (the food was quite good, but you better like it jerked) and for a change, we were listening to reggae. Not because we wanted to listen to raggae, but beause we were eating at a Jamaican restaurant.

And it could have been worse—it could have been country reggae.

But we were listening to reggae, when it struck me, the reggae music—it was a song I haven't heard in a long time …

“I have a sad story to tell you.”

I was trying to place where I heard it …

“It might hurt your feelings a bit.”

It's been years … and the heavy reggae beat wasn't helping, mon.

“I stepped in the bathroom last night.”

What was it?

“And stepped in a pile of shhhhhhhhh—”

Shaving Cream! It was the Shaving Cream song! Only with a very heavy reggae beat and a thick Jamaican accent. But yes, it was the Shaving Cream song!

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.
