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.

Apples from Alderaan

One thing I've noticed this holiday season is that I've heard the Star Wars theme more often than Christmas carols. I swear, it's as if every other commercial is some form of tie-in to the new Star Wars movie. Bunny pointed out this article about the various Star Wars branded products for sale and man, Star Wars makeup?


There's even a picture of a plastic bag of apples with a graphic of Darth Vader. Darth Vader! Come on! Slap a picture of Pricess Leia on that bag of apples! Everybody knows that apples come from (or rather, used to come from) Alderaan!


But really, enough with the Star Wars branding and music! I'm beginning to miss the traditional oversaturation of Christmas carols this year!

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.
