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.

It appears that my high school is now a day care center for delinquents

Coconut Creek High School was the first high school constructed in the City; built in 1972. With enrollment at 1,600, only 29% of the students are proficient in reading and 43% in math. 72% of the student body is considered economically challenged.

Via GoogleMyFaceTwitterPlusSpaceBook, What is your civic idea for Creek High?

My, how my high school has fallen (support for the statistics above). I remember back in 1986 (my junior year) Coconut Creek High School had five Silver Knight award winners, which is amazing when you consider there are only twelve awards given each year, and any senior in a Broward County high school can compete. It was a record at the time and one I think has yet to be broken.

It's sad to think how far down it has fallen.

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.
