Apparently if you have a touch control lamp, a cat, and the cat's paw pads are touching the lamp, you can control the lamp via the cat's nose :P

A very common problem is people installing software on Windows that tries to sneak other unwanted software along with the installation, hoping people won't notice the checkbox as they click through the "next" prompts.

I haven't tried it yet, but found out about this little app that tries to protect people from this type of problem.

Unchecky aims to keep potentially unwanted programs out of your computer.

In Windows, show devices which were installed at some point but are not currently present:

Open a cmd prompt and run "set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1 && start devmgmt.msc".

I did know about showing hidden devices, but did not realize there was a way to show non-present devices. Good for situations where you need to remove old hardware devices that you've since replaced/removed.

Someone mapped out where shots were fired in #ottawa  last year. It seems this town is no longer the one I grew up in :/
#ft
Here are the 49 cases of shots fired in 2014, a new record high for Ottawa.
