comment Is there a way to search for events with a equals-sign in Google Calendar?
Well depending on what other events you have, select "show search options" and in the "Doesn't have" field enter something like: This OR That OR Birthday OR Christmas OR Elephants This shows all events recent/coming events, excluding ones with the specified keywords - which (with enough words used) will eventually leave the ===== ones behind.

Also, pressing shift is not difficult. Use your little finger (or your left hand) when your right middle finger goes for the -/_ key.

I didn't say "=====" would work. It doesn't, and can't, because Google strips the = character from your search. Underscore is a special case - it's considered a "word character" by certain definitions, and so when Google's code removes all non-word characters from the search, it gets left behind and still works. I doubt there will be any other non-alphanumeric that act the same, so if not using shift is important for you then use xxxxx or iiiii or whatever.

*shrug* People tend to stay technologically unsophisticated if they're never given the opportunity to learn things because that thing might be too scary for them.

comment Quick \ automatic switching of 'from' account in Gmail
Not sure it's an answer to your problem, but in Settings>Accounts and Import I have the option "when replying to a message" and it has "reply from the same address the message was sent to" - which cuts down significantly the number of times I need to change the from message.

comment Are there any good Pandora alternatives with general availability outside the US?
However, one thing that bugs me about last.fm is the crappy volume - for most tracks I have both last.fm and system volume both at 100% and it's still too quiet. But occasionally a track will come along and I'll have to drop to 70% because it's artificially loud. (It's always tracks by the same artists, so I guess it means they're not volume normalised.)

last.fm lets me listen to "Mix Radio" (combination of music I've previously scrobbled plus recommended stuff) without subscribing - possible I've also reverted to a free trial account but there's no obvious indications of that.

Yeah, Jango works in the UK. Very limited in what songs it has for some artists though.
