Pin this site?
Internet Explorer 10 & 11 users can pin this site to their Task Bar.
Under Windows 7 or 8 simply drag and drop the favicon (the little Eric image) onto the Task Bar. Right-clicking the icon produces a handy list of links for you to enjoy.
Under Windows 8.1 you can also create a Live Tile for your Metro start screen. From the (cr)app version of IE click on the add-to-favourites 'star' and then 'pin' buttons and select 'Pin to Start'. Live notifications should then happen on the medium and wide tile settings. Doesn't bloody work though.
