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.

It's out!

About 50 months ago [It's only been 51 days. —Editor] [What? Really? Only 51 days? It feels longer. —Sean] [Yes, only 51 days. I know the COVID-19 thing has warped your sense of time but get a grip on yourself. —Editor] [Sigh. —Sean] 51 days ago, I reported a bug with Firefox, which took about a week to fix but wasn't slated to be released until version 76 of Firefox. Well, I just downloaded version 76 and yes, the bug is truly fixed.


Now if only the Oligarchist Cell Phone Company we work with at The Corporation could work as fast.

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.

It is assumed that every brand name, slogan, corporate name, symbol, design element, et cetera mentioned in these pages is a protected and/or trademarked entity, the sole property of its owner(s), and acknowledgement of this status is implied.
