asleep at the wheel, 40 miles left to go

Last Build Date: Tue, 27 Oct 2015 20:42:06 +0000


Dear Toronto Maple Leafs: It’s not me, it’s you, so we’re (finally) finished.

“You don’t need to go out there in sackcloth and ashes, but you’re a terrible team, your leader just got the chop and you’re being filmed. Show some goddamned sense.” – [[|Trading Phil Kessel is the key to overdue rebuild of the Maple Leafs]] – Cathal Kelly I don’t agree with Kelly on Kessel, but […]

taking the plunge

Fri, 31 Oct 2014 14:08:12 +0000

My wife, who is awesome, gave me a [[|Brooklyn BrewShop beer kit]] for Christmas last year. They’re one-gallon all-grain kits that make surprisingly good beer… basically a six pack. I worried [[|I might be hooked]] back in January and, surprise, I was. Since that time I’ve learned a bunch about water, grain, yeast, and hops, […]

running and writing

Thu, 30 Oct 2014 02:37:05 +0000

It’s been ten months since my last post here, which is probably the longest I’ve ever gone without updating my blog since I started well over a decade ago. There’s lots of reasons for it, most of which revolve around how the social tools I use make it so easy to share stuff. That stuff, […]

things that interest me this week – 29 oct 2014

Thu, 30 Oct 2014 02:13:19 +0000

**Quick Update:** A couple of people mentioned there’s no Mozilla items in here. They’re right, and it’s primarily because the original audience of this type of thing was Mozilla. I’ll make sure I add them where relevant, moving forward. Every week I put together a bunch of news items I think are interesting to the […]

so, this weekend, I tried making all-grain beer

Mon, 20 Jan 2014 18:07:02 +0000

I may be hooked. I have since done a tonne of reading, and stumbled across a local pico-brewer who has done amazing things with his home brew setup. I’m screwed, aren’t I?

Mozilla Firefox – Reset Your Profile, Recharge Your Browser

Mon, 11 Mar 2013 18:31:41 +0000

One of the best features in Firefox is one of its least-known. Many, many people complain of Firefox feeling slow and bloated over time, and in a number of cases, they’re not wrong. They just don’t know that surfing the web can be analogous to playing Katamari Damacy, where simply browsing can accumulate cruft until […]

teacher, a photo by ibekev on Flickr. I spent the last two weekends in a classroom. nine hours each day, learning about things I’m interested in. it’s been a hard year so far. I’m averaging about 65 hours a week at work, and I’m not even screwing around. it’s busy, and I’m exhausted, and I […]

Firefox OS Update Mechanics

Mon, 03 Dec 2012 16:17:09 +0000

I’ve changed roles at Mozilla, and have been working a lot less with external groups we work with on Firefox and more with partners interested in Firefox OS. A lot of what I’m focusing on is around explaining how Firefox OS works, what makes it different from other mobile operating systems and ecosystems, and what’s […]

Deadsquid Update

Sun, 12 Aug 2012 14:07:03 +0000

No one will really care about this but me, but that’s ok, I need to get in the habit of using this thing again. The dedicated server that’s continued on something like 14 years of hosting for friends and family is entering it’s final days. I’ve been moving sites over, and am hoping coop is […]

Repurposing Build Your Own Browser

Mon, 18 Jun 2012 13:21:43 +0000

Over two years ago we launched Build Your Own Browser as a way to create customized versions of Firefox that could be shared with friends, family, and affinity groups. Since that time we’ve had almost 6,000 individual registrations and almost 4,000 customized versions of Firefox submitted for distribution. We’re very happy with the response we’ve […]

Decelerating Deadsquid

Wed, 14 Mar 2012 23:50:57 +0000 turns 14 this month, and there are some changes afoot. I’ve been running a bunch of ISP-ish services – everything from dialup access to mail and web hosting – since 1995, and am tired of it. I like having my own server to do my own thing, and have been happy to help friends […]

Mozilla Firefox Extended Support Release

Tue, 31 Jan 2012 17:07:28 +0000

Just a quick note that the Mozilla Firefox Extended Support Release (ESR) is now available. The ESR is based on Mozilla Firefox 10, and is intended to be used by organizations that deploy Firefox in a managed desktop environment. You can read more about the Windows, Mac, and Linux installers from the Mozilla website, and […]

sorry mike.

no, really.

a note to myself

Mon, 31 Oct 2011 16:20:20 +0000

andrea posted a link to a note she leaves to herself to remember something important. I have something similar on my work computer to ensure I remember something important, too. I work with a great group of people at Mozilla, and a large part of how we function is through peer reviews of ideas, code, […]

firefox release dates

Mon, 19 Sep 2011 18:20:14 +0000

Update: Asa put a calendar up that is much better, as it covers all release channels, not just the main line. because I am always, always trying to figure out when a particular release of Firefox is coming out. big-assed disclaimer: this assumes unwavering adherence to releasing every six weeks. I will update this page […]
