Bunny walked into the Computer room.
“Want to see the lights?” she asked as she was opening up a package.
“Is that a remote-controlled outlet?”
“Yes it is.”
“Cool. Let's see the lights.” We walked out to look at the lights splayed across the front of Chez Boca.
“I just need to plug this in,” said Bunny.
She stepped around the bougainvillea bush and plugged the device into the outside outlet.
It made a large buzzing noise,
a large pop,
and then it burst into flames.
“It's not supposed to do that, is it?”
“I think you need to get your money back.”

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: https://boston.conman.org/, 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
