Devin Reams wearing a teal shirt in front of a teal sign that says 'trouble'

Howdy! I’m Devin. I’m sensibly impulsive, consistently non-committal, and passionately impartial. I’m a technologist living in Denver, Colorado.

MySpace Deodorant

As a follow up to this post (and this article) my brother has created, by far, the best MySpace profile out there ( I hope ‘Right’ starts sending me ads and coupons soon! Maybe he’ll even fill out my ‘ten things’ bulletin!

MySpace to Advertise?

Interesting article on how MySpace is thinking about… gasp… making money through advertising. Good thought! Their revolutionary thinking has essentially taken what Facebook has already done… and made it uglier… probably with music playing in the background: “To expand ad sales … [MySpace] plans to [turn] advertisers into members of the MySpace community, with their own profiles, like the teenagers’ ? so that the young people who often spend hours each day on MySpace can become “friends” with movies, cellphone companies and even deodorants. Young people can link to the profiles set up for these goods and services, as they would to real friends, and these commercial “friends” can even send them messages ? ads, really….” Yeah, that’ll fly. “I can’t wait to add my deodorant to my friend list!” Jackasses.

Studying Follow-Up

I nearly forgot I had written about my secrets to exam success: Studying for Tests. If you initially doubted me, that’s fine, I would be hesitant too. Let me assure you I received very high A’s on both accounting tests the second time around. As mentioned, take the first test and set the pace for the rest of the semester… do yourself a favor and focus on all those other important things during your extra time. That’s what I do!

claimID Invitations

The first two people to use this link will be able to register a claimID beta account. It’s sorta dumb but sorta useful. I’ll play with it a bit more. At first glance, it does little more than my About page.. but I realize not everyone out there has an About page.

Bloggers Remorse Squared

I have this weird feeling about blogging. I’ll write about topics but then I take a look at my visitors… many are here for the wrong reasons. I get 10 kids every day asking for MSN invites, I have another 20 Googleing myspace error messages and finding me. The rest are all here to take my free FIRO-B test.

Skype is Fun!

I haven’t been a big Skype user. Frankly, becuase nobody I typically socialize with has even heard of it. But, a select few have ‘converted’ and I’ve been playing with it more. Jeremy was the one I was primarily using it with but now I’ve got a reason to use it more: SkypeOut and SkypeIn.


Quote of the Day:

Gaining Life Experience

I’m a firm believer that college is only half (if even that) of one’s education. For example, my new job has taught me more about (Access) databases in one day then I’ve learned all semester in class (no offense). Plus, I can tell you more about the telcom industry than you’d ever care to know. Welcome to day two.
