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.

The clock that came in from the cold

The other day, my grandfather clock wasn't chiming correctly, so I took off the top portion (I think it's called a “hood”) and placed on a near-by chair. That was not a good idea as a few moments later, as I had my nose buried in the internals of the clock, I heard a horrible crash as the hood fell off the chair and was damaged.


Bunny and I dropped off the hood at Josef & Joseph for rapair. Back home, Bunny found a box, cut the side off of it, and placed it on the clock to keep the dust out of the clockworks.

[Image of a grandfather clock with a box acting as the hood to keep the dust out] Eh, it's twenty to six, ya hoser.

Maybe it's just me, but it looks like it's visiting from Canada.

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.
