Yes, I often also have random problems with steam. Often when I have no internets available I can't log in to offline mode. Pretty annoying.

It seems you could do a lot worse than fire up the 64 for some online fun:

Steam is a slow steaming pile of wait.

But better get used to this idea.
Blizzard is launching an executable plattform for their products with the new Battle.Net now.
But as always - I trust them to deliver.

(did you know Blizzard did Lost Vikings back on the Amgia btw)

Yes I'm ranting.
But I be teh bored.

Here's a picture to prove it. (that I am bored that is)

Steam. Going into offline mode is a pain in the ass. I did not had internet access for about a month. And guess what? The offline mode stopped working after 2 days. Woohoo. :argh: :whip:
