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.

I should have known better than to look up Nostradamus on the Intarwebs …

Ah, November 1st! Time once again for National Novel Generation Month.

I don't have a decent idea for this month. I've already done the Markov Chain, and the two chatbots fighting it out (which included writing a partial clone of MS-DOS to run one of the participants). Where do I go from there?

A quick idea I had was a cross of Time Cube with the prophecies of Nostradamus. The downside is that Time Cube already reads like a computer generated conspiracy rant and Nostraudamus … nojust no


I always have my fall back of English As She Is Spoke approach if nothing else comes up.

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.
