YouTube – Cajun Crawler Exhibition 08.

This makes me think it’s the bastard child of a VEX Walker and a Segway.

My New Dell Mini 9

I recently got a Dell Mini 9 for work and travel. It’s light weight, long on battery life, and keyboard doesn’t suck. So far I’m loving it.Mini9IMG_6525

The first thing most people notice is the small nine inch screen. At just 1024×600 it is a little cramped, but the display is very sharp and small fonts render well. I suggest running Firefox in full screen (kiosk) mode to maximize your display area. If you’re looking for the F11 key, it’s available, but hiding if you have a newer BIOS. fn z and x are F11 and 12 respectively. This makes switching in and out of full screen mode easier.

Everyone I’ve shown the netbook to wants to know about the keyboard. It is smaller than a normal laptop keyboard, but not as bad as the Asus eee 2G. Mini9IMG_6529I find that my right hand feels a little cramped and the number placement isn’t quite right, but I can still touch type on it with my fat fingers. The hardest thing to adapt to is the location of some of the punctuation, especially the tilde, pipe, and backslash. The grave and tilde have moved to fn q and w respectively and the pipe and backslash moved to the right of the P with the punctuation from right of the zero.

Doritos Toro Habanero

I just picked up a bag of Doritos Toro Habanero at the grocery store.  I can’t tell if this is a rebranding of their Fiery Habanero chips, but the Toro seem to be a little spicier and cheesier.  I might just have to get a bag of each to compare.  Each bite gives a temporary respite from the heat only to be replaced with a lingering and enjoyable burn.

I couldn’t find them online but if they aren’t a limited trial, Amazon might have them soon.

Warning: If you think the Fire sauce at Taco Bell is hot, then maybe you should pass on these.
