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.”

I don't care if it's a first world problem—it's annoying and I want it fixed

This is silly. The DSL is down. Again!

And the first available apppointment is the 15TH.

On top of this, we've already burned through our initial cell phone data plan with the Oligarchist Cell Phone Companies, and the updated cell phone plan with the Oligarchist Cell Phone Companies. We don't want the “unlimited data plan” because we (normally) don't need the “unlimited data plan” (and man, I found out the hard way that YouTube burns through data plans like you wouldn't believe).

So now we're adding data to our cell phone data plan 1GB at a time … Grrrrrrrr …

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.
