Yeah, basically there was a big steam update today, one that actually needed to turn off Steam for 3 hours. When one of these rare kind of updates occurs, there is so much hype around the time that it needs to be re-enabled that Steam basically dies when it is re-enabled, I would epxect everything will be well and good tomorrow morning.

It's the platform for playing games based on the hl engine, including hl2 eventually.

People think of steam like a bad kid on the football team. If he does something good people dont do anything like say good job but the second he messes up everyone hates him. This is what people do to steam. They dont say how good it is when it works but only when is messes up. I love steam and i have been useing it sience alpha, it the best thing that happened to cs.

I love Steam.
Basically, I read the terminology on another site, but basically this was like a "flash flood" download. Steam was off, teh crowds gathered and as soon as it was enabled before the content servers had time to propogate it was hit. hard. and incidentally fell over.

It seems fine this morning.

I wonder what they have the bit torrent guy doing to make this happen far less?

Well he has been there for months, so don't expect a sudden change. Valve did announce that soon their content servers will be hosted on one of the big p2p networks.

exactly. I personally think that steam is a great concept, and has thus far been implimented pretty well.

only thing that bothers me with it sometime is if my lard of a brother plays counter-strike all afternoon, I have trouble connecting to friends network BUT thats probably just a sloppy networking problem here at home

me = friends with steam :p

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
