I'd have to say a big NO to helping the gaming community. :( I'll just wait like everyone else.
But, what if it was a stunt by Valve to keep the advertising flowing? "Oops, someone stole our source code... Oops, someone finished the game for us."
What is it you do that gets you up at 3am? I'd have to say working and going to school at the same time can be difficult, but rewarding in the end. You gain experience (something to put on that resume of yours). And dismissing the worry of paying back the loan after you graduate.
Unless the program asks you to reboot, I dont find it necessary. :)
Here's something I would try.
Backup any mail that you'd like to keep. Un-install Outlook XP, Reboot, and Re-install Outlook XP.
Doesnt sound efficient but could work.
