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.

This is the type of White Christmas I can get behind

“You know it's Christmas Eve, right?” asked Bunny.

“Um … yeah.”

“I'll let you open a gift tonight.”


“Yes. No, not that one.”


“No, not that one either.”

“Well, which gift then?”

“Look in the freezer.”

“The freezer?

“Yes. The freezer. The one in the garage.”

“Okay. … NO WAY‽

“And check the oven for the authentic automotive industry steel pan.”


[It came in a box made out of New York style pizza.]

An authentic Buddy's pizza, delivered over 1,200 miles frozen, and a proper pan to finish cooking it in.

I can't thank Bunny enough.

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.
