For those of you who may not be aware... You can configure things, so that Skyrim outputs multi-channel surround sound just like on an Xbox or PS3.  Assuming you already have your Windows PC hooked up to a multi-channel receiver, you go to the sound icon in the system tray. 

Right click it and choose "Playback devices".

Now right click your sound device and choose "Configure Speakers", then choose 5.1 or 7.1.

Once configured, Skyrim will output fantastically decoded 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound on your PC so now you can hear your Dragon Shouts in their full glory.

One note, however:  If you are using SPDIF or Optical, most likely you won't see the "Configure Speaker" option.. this only seems to work on "HDMI" connections.

When you receive a new e-mail and that e-mail is not on your "Safe Senders List" in Outlook, images in an HTML email will not be visible. This is by default that HTML images are turned off and not downloaded. To get them to appear you would then right click and choose junk.. “Never Block Sender” or “Never Block Sender’s Domain” or “Never Block this Group or Mailing List”. Once you do one of these three, it adds that type of email to the Junk Email Safe Senders List.

As a result every time you get a new email from that person, domain or mailing list, all the images will be downloaded, letting you view the email in its full glory.

Flash forward to a machine wipe, starting from scratch.

If you have ever had to reinstall office on a machine, from scratch, you know that by default on a clean machine, there is no data on your safe senders. There is an option in Outlook that lets you import and export this list that many may not be aware of...
