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.”

“I want you to go. But the name doesn't matter. I've saved you from being forever a purple kitten.”

It's November 1st. You know what that means—National Novel Generation Month! It's the National Novel Writing Month for those people who can write code but not necessarily prose. Last year I completed The Quantum Supposition of OZ and it garnered a respectable number of comments (mostly about punctuation, but hey, I'll take what I can get).

I don't have any definitive ideas right now, but I did make a note of machine generated TED-talks as a possible idea. I might also have time to do The Psychotherapy of Racter, or The Descent into Madness of Dr. Eliza. So many possibilities …

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.
