Fun Facts About Leap Year

2012 is a leap year, with 366 days instead of the usual 365 days. Here are some fun things you may not have known about this special year. 

Why Do We Have Leap Years? 
It was the ancient Egyptians who first figured out that the solar year and the man-made calendar year didn’t always match up. That’s because it actually takes the Earth a little longer than a year to travel around the Sun — 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes, and 46 seconds, to be exact. Therefore, as the hours accumulated over the centuries, an extra day was occasionally added to the calendar and over time, the practice became more or less official. 

The Romans first designated February 29 as leap day, but a more precise formula (still in use today) was adopted in the 16th century when the Gregorian calendar fine-tuned the calculations to include a leap day in years only divisible by four - 2012, 2016, 2020, 2024, etc. 

Another stipulation ruled that no year divisible by 100 would have a leap year, except if it was divisible by 400. Thus, 1900 was not a leap year...but 2000 was!

Leap Year cocktail recipe
Invented at the Savoy Hotel in London on February 29, 1928 the Leap Year Cocktail was said to have spurred many a marriage proposal.

2 ounces gin
1/2 ounce Grand Marnier
1/2 ounce sweet vermouth
1/4 ounce fresh lemon juice

Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Serve with a twist of lemon.

Famous People Born on February 29 
1976 - Ja Rule, rapper 
1972 - Antonio Sabato Jr., model & actor 
1916 - Dinah Shore, singer 
1904 - Jimmy Dorsey, bandleader 
1792 - Gioacchino Rossini, Italian opera composer 

Leap Day Tradition - No Man is Safe! 
The tradition of women romantically pursuing men in leap years began in 5th century Ireland when St. Bridget complained to St. Patrick about the fairer sex having to wait for men to propose. Patrick finally relented and set February 29 aside as the day women were allowed the right to ask for a man’s hand in marriage. 

The tradition continued in Scotland, when Queen Margaret declared in 1288 that on February 29 a woman had the right to pop the question to any man she fancied. Menfolk who refused were faced with a fine in the form of a kiss, a silk dress, or a pair of gloves given to the rejected lady fair. 

Leap Year on Stage and Screen 
Leap Day plays a pivotal role in the fictional The Pirates of Penzance, the most famous Gilbert & Sullivan comic opera that was translated to Broadway and the silver screen. 

In the story, the hero Frederic realizes his apprenticeship binds him until his 21st birthday, but since his birthday falls on February 29, it means that technically he is only a young lad and won’t reach his 21st birthday until he is in his eighties!

A Leap Year Poem 
Thirty days hath September, 
April, June and November; 
All the rest have thirty-one 
Save February, she alone 
Hath eight days and a score 
Til leap year gives her one day more

How To Make Windows 7 Genuine Without Tools?

Very Important: Please create a System Restore Point before making any changes to your computer. This will help in case anything goes wrong.

You get a message - this copy of Windows is not genuine - if you are using a pirated or OEM copy of Windows 7. Sometimes it also presents the message on genuine installations. The article takes a look at the reason and how to remove Windows genuine Advantage message.

Windows 7 says This copy of Windows is not Genuine – WHY?
If your Windows 7 was working fine and you suddenly start receiving messages saying this copy of Windows is not genuine - for Windows 7, chances are that you must have installed the Windows 7 update KB971033. This Windows 7 update scans for more than 70 activation bypasses to detect if your copy of Windows 7 is genuine or not. If it finds even a single activation bypass, you are in a mess. Windows 7 starts bombarding you with messages that say – this copy of Windows is not Genuine – and reminds you constantly that you need to go for a genuine version.
For OEM editions, I won't recommend using Automatic Windows updates. It is better to turn off Windows updates and check them out manually on every second Tuesday of each month. Microsoft releases fresh updates for MSRT and other important safety software on the second Tuesday of each month. You can access the Windows Update site using Tools menu in the Internet Explorer. While you are on the Windows Update website, choose Custom option instead of Express and make sure you are not downloading the KB971033 update or any other update related to genuineness of Windows. If you have already downloaded and installed KB971033 and are receiving messages saying this copy of Windows is not Genuine for Windows 7, you need to remove it.
The next section deals with how to remove Windows Genuine Advantage and how to remove KB971033.

How to Remove Windows Genuine Advantage and KB971033
If you are getting nag screens and are not able to use/install programs because your Windows 7 thinks that the copy is not genuine, you can remove the Windows Genuine Advantage even on a legitimate copy of Windows 7.

Open Control Panel
Select Programs and Features
Select Installed Updates
Look for list item “Update for Microsoft Windows (KB971033)”
Select the above item, if listed, and click Uninstall
Close the Programs and Features Windows after the update is removed.

You can then proceed to remove Windows Genuine Advantage tool. Do the following to disable/remove the Windows genuine advantage:

3. Delete the folder WGALOGON.

4. Close the registry editor and delete the file WgaTray from your system32 folder and from your 'dllcache' folder located inside the system32 folder.

5. Reboot.

You may be prompted to install Windows Genuine Advantage Notifications, but this option can be deselected.
In order to prevent these files from being installed again, make sure your Windows Update in Control Panel is set to Notify but do not automatically download. This way, you can make sure that you are not downloading the same files again.

Alternate Method to Remove Windows Genuine Advantage
Many people are not able to find the WGA files on their computer. I did some research to assist them remove Windows Genuine Advantage.

1 Press Windows Key + R to open the Run window.
2 In the Run window, type cmd to open the command prompt.
3 At the command prompt, type cd \ and press Enter.
4 Now type dir *wga*.* /s to find the wga files.

Once the results are displayed. Make a note of folders where the wga files are located. You can then navigate to these folders using My Computer and rename the files to remove Windows Genuine Advantage notifications.

It's a hit on all platforms. It's has various version available for gamers to play. The newest is Angry Birds Space.

The above picture looks like the old Red bird, but it's different, it's a brand new bird for the new version of Angry birds.
Angry birds had an great time on earth, destroying types of enemies like pigs,monkeys etc. They now headed for the space, the new version is going to be played in space, everyone is curious about the environment and the new enemies, but I am most curios about about the new bird in above picture, that's completely looks so robotic.

It's going to launch on 22 March.

The earlier versions of Angry birds were also great, the last time Rovio caught people's attention, it was the launch of Angry Birds on Facebook,which is also a hit. Now Rovio is in the NEWS again because of their new upcoming version of Angry birds.

Fans of Angry Birds are extremely excited about the new Angry Birds, I am sure this will be going to be more thrill than any of earlier version of the game. The name is enough to make people crazy about it.

In Angry birds, the space was seen last in "Angry Birds Season" in a Golden Egg level of "Summer Picnic", but it's not important that the look and feel will be same as that, because if we see the picture on Angry Birds Space web page, we will get idea about it and see the picture of Golden Egg level in Seasons.

The tagline of Angry birds Space is "One small fling for a bird, one quantum leap for birdkind" seems very strong, this time the birds are going to be more bold than in any versions.

There are lot's of question about this version of Angry Birds, one of the most asked question is "Is this the final version of Angry Birds" , but I don't think so, they will be back again, Rovio wouldn't like to discontinue Angry Birds version, although Rovio is more famous for Angry birds, so they would not leave the game in same state, and Rovio will give us more versions of Angry birds.
