sent me to A Mind is Born,
a 2½ minute demo program
(a program that display some mind-blowing graphics and music) done on the Commodore 64.
The impressive thing here isn't that it's done on the C-64,
nor the graphics,
nor the music,
but that he did all that in less than 256 bytes!
the above paragraph is 351 bytes in size
(or 521 if you include the HTML markup).
That is inconceivable to me that one can even do something like that with so little.

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
