Dusting Up the VIX

Is it me or is the 3X Gold Miner short fund DUST beginning to look a lot like the VIX did a couple weeks ago?  I actually shorted the VIX during the bear hysterics (and promptly chickened out and took the profit way too soon).  I wonder if there will come a time to be brave enough to short the gold miner VIX, AKA DUST?  Things are getting pretty hysterical in gold miner land.
