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.

Yeah, there was a reason why we couldn't sell these

The power at Chez Boca went out on Friday afternoon and didn't come back up until around noon today. It was a painful reminder of just how addicted dependent I am on the Internet and cat videos. So to pass the time, I decided to go through my Dad's CD collection that remain (that is, those that we kept because they might be good enough to keep and not thrown away because we coudn't sell them).

On one of the CDs I listened to, I found the following text:

Tai Chi Way Regimen Music
Return To Simplicity

(Warning: Due to the relaxing effect of the music, do not listen while driving, working, or participating in any kind of mechanical operation)

The Internet couldn't come back soon enough.

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.
