It's been fun going though some of my own entries with the new “this day” feature.
One thing I've noticed is that I used to write way more entries in the past than I do now.
Part of that may be the newness of online journaling.
Another part might be there was less risk of repeating myself.
Perhaps I hadn't run out of things to say?
I did find a stash of unfinished entries from the time I started working at Negiyo when I checked out this day of October 13TH.
I was afraid the partial text was due to a bug,
the 13TH of October, 2000 really is a few sentence fragments,
along with a whole bunch of other non-entries that month—I guess I never finished those.
And that entry for October 30TH, 2000?
It's not cut off—apparently I came across the source code for ITS.
But I can't even remember what I wanted to say,
much less where I stuffed said source code.
And what was up with the security guard and the Bible?
I want to know!
I need closure!
Curse my younger self for not finishing these entries!

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: 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
