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.

Extreme puzzle room, Brevard NC edition

So there's this, embedded into the wall:

[A small conrol panel to what looks like a media center] If this is a remote, what is it doing embedded into the wall?

It can't be a remote, since it's not … um … remotable. It's part of the wall. Evern weirder, it's in the bathroom!

[Picture of the bathroom, with the weird remote in the wall.] And of all things in the bathroom, there is no media center in here.

It might make sense if it had options like “water temperature” and “shower” or “bidet” but no, it's looks like it would control a media center that doesn't seem to exist anywhere in the suite. I asked the owner about it, and even she was clueless. Oh wait! This is an older house … could there possibly be a hidden room?

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.
