“The ‘Project: Heimdall’ team now want all the numbers,”
my fellow cow-orker.
“Really?” I asked.
“They can finally deal with international phone numbers?”
“Apparently yes. So ‘Project: Sippy-Cup’ needs to open the flood gates and let all the numbers through.
But make it configurable.”
So I dive into the code for “Project: Sippy-Cup” and … what's this?
The code is already in place.
From last year.
When it was clear that “Project: Heimdall” could not,
handle all the numbers!
I remember it was annoying having to send all NANP numbers
(those that are 10 digits,
even the malformed,
invalid NANP numbers
while making sure I didn't pass along valid,
international numbers that also happened to be 10 digits long
Now that the “Project: Heimdall” team has to deal with the crap we get … well … good luck. We're all counting on you.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or

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

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
