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.

Words words words words words and more words

Ah, November—a few things come to mind:

I stopped doing NaNoWriMo years ago, instead switching to doing NaNoGenMo as it's more my style to have a computer do the hard work for me. I was worried that I had no idea what to do for NaNoGenMo, but much to my surprise, I found I left notes to myself for this years NaNoGenMo during last year's NaNoGenMo. I don't think anyone has done this before, so I don't want to give too much away at this time since the idea is (at least to me) very obvious (and no, it's not a novel of 50,000 meows).

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.
