Right after finding out about Cashiers being a hotbed of UFO activity,
my keyboard flaked out on me.
The “o,” and “r” keys would register sporadically,
which is odd given that I only use IBM Model M keyboards.
And why then?
Is it something they don't want me to know?
Or maybe … aliens?
I've probably been using that keyboard for nearly twenty years
(it probably just needs good cleaning,
but it requires a special screw driver to open),
I have an entire stash of IBM Model M keyboards at hand to swap out.
so I think I'm set for the rest of my life
Because have you seen the prices for IBM Model M keyboards?
Averaging around $150,
with spikes up to $650!
I never paid more than $10 for any of mine.
I pulled another keyboard from my stash,
gave it a light dusting,
and I'm good to go.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or

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

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
