Every few days there is a huge BOOM! that seems to emanate from Boston Harbor. It really echoes throughout downtown. What causes it?

Second full day of the Boston Waterpocalypse, and I have to go to work. I NEED to know: can I use a Steripen to sterilize the coffee from the contaminated coffee machines at the office? [more inside]
Does anyone know whether the zombie march from Davis Square in Somerville to Harvard Square in Cambridge will be taking place this Sunday? If so, what time? I can't seem to find any information about it. Or, if you know any other zombie marches in/around Boston this weekend, I love to hear about them. [more inside]
I'm new to Boston (not here even a week yet). What should I be sure to see or do as I get settled? How do I fit in (and hide the fact that I'm from NYC)? [more inside]
