Attention geeks far and wide! Ada Lovelace Day - wrote first computer program

Thanks to Andy Dietz for this bit of trivia

Did you know that today (March 24) is Ada Lovelace Day? The only daughter of poet Lord Byron, Ms. Lovelace wrote the very first computer program, inspired by Charles Babbage's analytical engine. Wherever you are tomorrow, show some love to the self-rescuing code princesses you know. Buy 'em some Fritos and raise a can of Mountain Dew in Ada's honor.

Hooray for girl geeks!
