As appreciation of our hard work,
The Corporation decided to treat us
(and by “us,” I mean “The Ft. Lauderdale Office Of The Corporation”)
to lunch at Tap 42.
Wanting to know just where Tap 42 was located,
I opened up Google Maps on my smartphone and started to type in the address.
I got as far as “1411” when I noticed that the top possible option was “1411 S Andrews Ave Ft. Lauderdale”—the address of Tap 42.
“How?” I asked my office mate and fellow cow-orker T.
“How did it know?”
perhaps Google noticed a flurry of similar queries coming from the same location,”
Plausible I suppose.
But I'm not sure how I feel about that.
It seems … eerily prescient and disturbing.
Almost like Cyber Brother is watching over us.

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
