Today's is cool. I kept waiting and waiting for it to stop; finally I clicked the square that I'd started it from, and then it went to where I could find out who the guy was. Their legs are not all in sync, are they?

Nope: good catch, however.

They're at different times in the cycle.

I knew who they were honoring immediately, but I didn't recall the name. Since I was reminded yesterday, I have forgotten again. Perhaps others are similarly neuro-retentionally disadvantaged.

If today is April 24 on your planet, unzip it.

Google

Alan Turing's birthday!

EDIT: I can't begin to figure it out. Here's some outright thievery:
The Alan Turing doodle that Google posted on the occasion of British mathematician and the father of computing's 100th birth anniversary is easily the most cryptic Google doodle till date.

Google has brought to digital life one of Turing's incredible work (and an eventful life that ended in tragedy), the theoretical Turing machine that he proposed in a mathematical paper. This Turing machine doodle, unlike most other doodles isn't meant for general Google users but is instead targeted towards those with a knowledge of computer programming - a science of which Turin was a pioneer.

While the initial task on hand seems to be spelling out the letters g-o-o-g-l-e in binary in six steps. On successfully completing each step the letters of the greyed-out Google logo get filled with colour, one at a time. But Google wouldn't have let its tribute to the famous code breaker get decoded in a breeze. "If you get it the first time, try again... it gets harder!," Google said in a post on its official blog.
