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.

At the roadways of madness

The sucking vortex of non-Euclidean roadways known as Orlando began it's influence of madness over us hours before we left. We were planning on how best to get back to the Turnpike from the hotel when Bunny and I started arguing yet again. She wanted to follow the torturous path we took to get here, which involved an intricate series of turns and switchbacks while carefully aligning ourselves within certain lanes at certain times. I wanted to follow yet another intricate path of a torturous series of turns and switchbacks while carefully aligning outselves within certain times at certain lanes. Either route lead to madness.

Also at stake was who would be the unfortunate driver to brave the maelstrom of roads until the relative safety of the Turnpike. I don't recall who drove. All I know is we barely made it out alive.

Unrelated, I wish to leave you with a mental image of the most surreal observation I saw on the way out of the hotel: a Little Person and their dog riding a Segway down the hall.

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.
