Uni-code input

I learned this week how to use uni-code input in Linux. The key combination is Ctrl+Shift+U then it will flash a u and next to it I would type say ae, hit enter and it would output "®" pretty cool. I almost never need to be able to do this but once in awhile I might want a "Σ" or "⏏". Pretty fun here are a few links.
