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.

In keeping things accessible around here (The W3C accessibility checklist, the U.S. Federal Government Section 508 accessibility guildelines, stuff like that) I've implemented the following access keys (under Microsoft Windows, it's ALT-accesskey and on an Apple Macintosh, it's CTRL-accesskey), as commonly used:

The Access Key Definitions for The Boston Diaries
Access Key What the Access Key accesses
1 The link to the main page
4 The search box in the sidebar
9 Feedback to me
0 This very page

Also, in those browsers that support it, you can use the tab key to get to the search box and the email notification box in the sidebar (although at least one browser will put the two advertising boxes in the tab rotation so you may need to hit tab a few times).

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.

It is assumed that every brand name, slogan, corporate name, symbol, design element, et cetera mentioned in these pages is a protected and/or trademarked entity, the sole property of its owner(s), and acknowledgement of this status is implied.
