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.

Traffic jams at night

If I thought the drive up to North Florida was bad, the drive back was even worse! There was heavy traffic southbound on the Florida Turnpike. And bumper-to-bumper traffic in I-95 south at 11:00 pm. On a Sunday! (“What you are all doing on the road at this time of night? Why aren't you at home sleeping?”)

I think it took us … twelve? … hours to get home for what should normally be a 7½ hour trip (not only did we change time zones, but there was also that whole “spring back” thing to contend with).

We also learned one should not attempt to eat at The Cracker Barrel on a Sunday afternoon in North Florida (there was a waiting line just to park!).

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.
