I thought it’d be a “fun” project to see what the “El Capitan License” actually says.
Kind of like spelunking through a cave that everyone says they’ve been through,
but maybe no one really has.
What will I find wedged in a wall or lurking in the dark around the next turn?
- I can’t use the Capitan with illegal copies of anyone’s stuff.
- Apple didn’t sell me this software. They still own it, in fact. I’m just borrowing it.
- If I install more Apple software, those are on loan as well.

Hmm … I guess I was more right than I thought …

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: https://boston.conman.org/, 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
