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.”

Merry Christmas!

[It's a little known fact that Santa Claus swaps our his deer for flamingos when over the state of Florida.]

If you celebrate Christmas, hopefully one of these Santas delivered you and yours some sweet sweet swag. And if you don't celebrate Christmas (and heck, even if you do) hopefully you get to spend this holiday season with friends and loved ones.

“When out from the fridge there arose such a clatter, I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter”

“Oh no!”

“What happened?”

“All over the garage fridge!”

“What happ—oh!”

[A soda can exploded in the fridge. It was so excited about Santa Claus coming to town that it exploded in anticipation!]

“Orange soda is everywhere!

“Well, at least the pecans are now candied.”

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.
