I think Hitman would be a great TV Show where each episode builds on Hitman's origin story and can play homage to a mission that is featured in the games.

May as well put air quotes in the mix-up part as well.

Businesses always buy taken domains if it relates to their product or service. So it wouldn't be surprising if celebrities did the same with taken usernames
Instagram apologises to a man after his username is taken over by a footballer with the same name.

I just thought I would mark today with a post I made four years ago, welcoming everyone on board just a few minutes after we flipped the switch and launched Google+. 

Over the course of the week that followed, I decided to try something a bit crazy and not really "traditional Google:" I spent lots of time running around the service, talking to everyone I encountered, and welcoming them aboard. What I found was that there were tremendous numbers of people out there who wanted to talk: not just about the service, but about all the things they cared about in their lives, from their pets to geopolitics. And the results changed my life.

It's been an amazing four years here: I've seen the project grow from a crazy idea to a giant, thriving community, spread around the world.  I've had so many conversations on so many subjects, and learned so much in the process, that I can't even count. I've learned to write much more effectively, and what it is to have a real conversation about incredibly sensitive subjects where people nonetheless treat each other with respect and seriousness. I've made an amazing group of friends here, people I love and trust and talk to every day. And I even met the love of my life, my brilliant and beloved wife, through the service.

So looking back on four years of what we've built here, I can say: this is going really well. I'm exceptionally glad to have met all of you, and to have had some part in building this community we share, and I'm looking forward to seeing where the next four years take us!

Accidentally dropped my food (Chicken Tikka Masala) on the carpet.

And I was enjoying it too (from the 3 spoonfuls that I had)

Great news, means I don't have to do a fresh install of Windows 8 to get to the final version of Windows 10
We’ve known for a while that when Windows 10 comes out, it will be a free upgrade to most users. What if you’re using the preview version, though? Yep, you’re included. So if you’re on an old version of Windows that isn’t eligible for the upgrade (like XP or Vista), installing the Preview can get you in the door.
