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.

Just one of life's smaller mysteries

Some fellow cow-orkers and I were returning from lunch to work and as we rounded the corner to The Ft. Lauderdale Office of The Corporation, we found the entire front of the building swarming with fire and rescue vehicles. Thirteen in all.

There were no police, so it wasn't an office shooting (thankfully!). No crowd of people were huddled outside the building, so there didn't appear to be an evacuation. No smoke, so there apparently was no fire. But something happened that required thirteen responding units.

[You can easily make out four firetrucks, one of which was in the process of transforming to a giant robot.] [Another four, although one is hidden somewhat by the trees.  There are more, but you can't see the trucks for the trees.]

We were able to park and enter the building. From what little we heard, there was an “incident” on the 6th floor, but what it was, and how many were involved, was unknown.

Just one of life's smaller mysteries.

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.
