Google is honoring Pi Day today
Quote
Pi Day and Pi Approximation Day are two holidays held to celebrate the mathematical constant π (pi) (in the mm/dd date notation: 3/14); since 3, 1 and 4 are the first three digits of π. March 14 is also the birthday of Albert Einstein and the two events are sometimes celebrated together.

@ spg SCOTT

In Canada, Mother's Day is celebrated on the second Sunday of May, every year, similar to that in USA. :)

Have some of this pie instead.

Peruvian surfer Domingo Pianezzi rides a wave with his alpaca, Pisco, at San Bartolo beach in Lima, Peru, on March 16. Pianezzi has spent a decade training dogs to ride on the nose of his board, and now he is the first to do so with an alpaca.

Speed Up Windows 7 Taskbar Navigation with a Registry Hack


Launch regedit.exe (Win+R, then paste regedit.exe)
Navigate in the left tree control to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced
Go to Edit->New->DWORD (32-bit) Value
Name the value LastActiveClick
Hit enter to assign the value and change it to 1
Restart Explorer and you're good to go.

To restart Explorer without rebooting, open the Task Manager (Ctrl+Shift+Esc) and end the Explorer.exe process. Then create a new task (under "File") and paste "explorer.exe".
