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.

Okay! I'll answer your question, LinkedIn. Also, Orange Site! Orange Site! Orange Site!

Today's “you're one of the few experts invited to add this collaborative article” from LinkedIn is “How do you become a senior application developer?” My answer? Stay in a programming job for three years. Boom! You're a senior application developer. I know, I know, that's a big ask these days when everybody is jumping ship every two years. But hey, if you want to be a “senior application developer,” you got to make sacrifices.

Oh, and the title to today's post? I found out that LinkedIn really liked when I mentioned the Orange Site in the title of my post. Almost two orders of magnitude more. So I'm doing a test to see if I can game the system there.

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.
