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.

Falettinme Be Mice Elf Ag

Bunny and I were in my car when this song from the Sly and the Family Stone came on. On the screen was the title, “Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Ag)”. Bunny attempted to read it and was having a hard time with it; I suggested that perhaps XM Radio had used some form of audio transcription that went wrong somewhere, because Sly and the Family were clearly singing “thank you for letting me be myself.”

I was about to make a satirical post about it, but when I was looking up the song … well … that's the actual name! Okay, it's actually “Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)” (the screen wasn't wide enough for the entire title). But still … that's the actual name of the song! Sheesh!

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.
