I'm on a quest for a tequila that is as smooth to drink as Grand Marnier.
  1. paQuí Silvera : Surprisingly, this is a bit easier to drink than Herradura Añejo. It simply has a little less bite. I expected that I would like an añejo more.

  2. Herradura Añejo : It's not quite smooth sipping, but very good with a small piece of ice.

  3. Patrón Silver : Not sure what all the fuss is about here. They're clearly brilliant marketers.

  4. Cabo Wabo Reposado : Essentially donkey urine with artificial sweeteners. I can't believe I actually paid money for this. I couldn't choke down the last few ounces even in a mixed drink so I poured it down the drain, an act I would normally consider heresy.

Launchy, Remote Desktop, Dual Monitors, and Windows 7

I've come to love Launchy -- to the point where I get irritated when it's not installed on a machine I might be working on temporarily.

Unfortunately, when I setup my new machine, I suddenly could not trigger Launchy while using my preferred remote desktop application, visionapp Remote Desktop. I'm not sure if it was my new dual-monitor configuration or Windows 7, but every time I hit Alt+Space it would trigger Launchy on my machine no matter what I did. This was not a problem on XP with a single monitor.

The work-around I found was to change the hotkey combination on the remote machine. I simply changed it to Ctrl+Alt+Space and it worked perfectly! Wish I thought of that sooner!
