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 feel the earth, move, under my feet

It's a bit disconcerting when the office is shaking. It would be one thing if I worked in The Los Angeles Office of The Corporation, but I'm don't—I work in The Ft. Lauderdale (as in Florida) Office of The Corporation (and besides, we don't have an office in Los Angeles).

I'm not alone in this—I asked around and yes, other people felt it too. It wasn't a violent “up and down and oh my God we're all going to die!” type of shaking, more of a “I can just make out this vibration in the floor; the building isn't going to collapse on us, is it?” type of vibration.

The only consolation (and it's not much) is that this isn't the first time this has happened.

And no one can explain why

Update later today

My friend and fellow cow-orker B mentioned on GoogleMyFacePlusSpaceBook that the shaking was caused by frieght trains going by. It makes sense, seeing how there's a railroad right next to the building.

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.
