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
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

followed by 10 seconds of silence.
My social will be suspended.
I guess that explains why I no longer have Google+.

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: https://boston.conman.org/, 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
