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.

My social has been suspended

Of course just when I default to a silent ring tone, Verizon is offering services to block robocalling, which might explain why the number of robocalls I've received the past few days has dropped dramatically. That doesn't mean I'm going to stop using the silent ring tone.

So an unknown caller calls me, only this one leaves me voice mail. Usually when that happens, it's because it's someone I know calling from an unknown number or the car dealership telling me my car is ready or something along those lines.

I listen to the message: “—number we have gotten an order to suspend your social at very right moment becaue we have found many suspicious activities on your social before we go ahead and suspend your number kindly call us back on our number … which is … 325 … 399 ‥ 0630. I repeat it's … 325 … 399 … 0630. Thank you and good-bye,” followed by 10 seconds of silence.


Just wow.

My social will be suspended. I guess that explains why I no longer have Google+.

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.
