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.

Murphy's Law strikes again

Hmm … interesting.

I'm having to use the web interface to post to my blog and unfortunately, it's one of the least tested parts of the code since I rarely use the web interface (mainly because editing in the web browser sucks). I generally use the email interface, but given the lack of power around here, that's not an option.

Anyway, I wrote the previous entry and when I went to view it before posting it, nothing happened other than the browser just sitting there, waiting for a response back from the server. I did that several times before I remembered the definition of insanity. Then I just tried posting it. The entry was posted, but the browser was still waiting for a reposnse from the server.

At least that isolates where the problem might be.

Anyway, I'm just writing this so I remember to come back and fix this once power is restored.

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.

It is assumed that every brand name, slogan, corporate name, symbol, design element, et cetera mentioned in these pages is a protected and/or trademarked entity, the sole property of its owner(s), and acknowledgement of this status is implied.
