So I was sitting at work bored the other night. I, for some reason or another, started playing with my razr. I had installed an ssh client on it a long time ago and never got it to connect. While browsing the web I had noticed that Opera had a mini version for cell phones. Knowing that the current wap browser blew donkey nuts, I decided to give Opera Mini a try.

It is truly one of the best ways I have found to browse the wen on a cell phone. It can render normal, non-wap pages. It can even load images. Surprisingly, it is a lot faster then the normal text only wap browser. Opera also featured a option to enable small text which allows more to fill the small screen. That is the biggest seller for me. The next cool thing I found is that it has a page-up and down key via the joystick. I always did hate the browse by selecting the links to go up and down.

All in all, I am happy I had added the unlimited internet plan to my service cause I see myself using Opera Mini a lot in the future. Now I can keep up on all my news when I am on the road or at the bar. Probably more the latter then former.

Other then that, went to New York City this past weekend. Had a good time. Me and the sister went up to just hang out and relax. All in all was a good trip.
