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.

And hopefully, this means I stop getting SMS spam from politicians

It's political season. Not to be confused with deer season (or rabbit season, or duck season or even gator season, much to the dismay of many). And it's the second Tuesday of November on an even year, so it's also Federal political season.


The sun was out, the weather was cool (for Florida, which means the asphalt is only slightly soft from the heat) and as usual, I walked to the polling station. It wasn't crowded at all and it only took a few moments to fill out the ballot.

[“I VOTED” sticker, Florida edition, which means it has a manatee on it] You know, I kind of wish more manatees were on the ballot this year.

And while this should mean I no longer get SMS from politicians slinging mud at each other, there are still a few days of dire SMS warnings about the end of the world.

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.
