Hi! I’m Devin and I work at Mozilla. I’m sensibly impulsive, consistently non-committal, and passionately impartial.

Scott Adams vs Devin

Scott Adams, yesterday: “I was taking a shower one day ? that?s where all my good ideas are born…” vs Devin Reams, 3 weeks ago: “I was doing some quality thinking in the shower (my best ideas originate while soaking in hot water)”. I thought I was the only crazy shower thinker.

Entreprenurial Quotient

What’s your Entreprenurial Quotient? I got a 72%. I’m okay with that because a few of the questions ask what are the ‘best’ and, well, I get to pick what’s ‘best’ right? But seriously, they’re some good questions. Oh, and why make us go through the Tickle sign up? If I can make a FIRO-B assessment you can put together a quiz that doesn’t require my birthdate!

Media Center Edition

Despite popular belief, television is still great and still very alive. Sure, technology and the internet are awesome. But what I’ve found to be more awesome is the combination of the two. Windows Media Center Edition brings my TV to my computer. No longer do I need two seperate screens in my room (hah, but I do anyway). I just pull up Media Center and can tune into my cable TV. Besides, I watch the History Channel like it’s my job and I’m glad I can take screenshots from Modern Marvels:

Devin Maps

Ben put up some maps of where he’s travelled. I’m actually surprised he hasn’t been more places (yet). In any case, he beat me to blogging about travel…

Google Firefox Page?

Is there something going on with Google’s FireFox page? It’s very on and off today. Co-workers are seeing the same behavior. The requested URL /firefox?client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official was not found on this server.

Living Honestly

I was given an assigment to spend three days living 100% honestly. No fibs, no exaggerating, no cheating, no stealing. The following are my thoughts:

Ugly Works

Just reading this post enrages me. Google isn’t ugly. It’s simple. Craigslist isn’t ugly, it’s content-rich. Purple backgrounds with yellow text on Myspace? That’s ugly. I will agree though, who cares what a blog looks like? You can’t see my pretty header in Bloglines. Blogs are about the content. Don’t judge a book by it’s cover… well, unless that book is Myspace. In that case you’d be right.
