    *spoliers* hl2 sadness

    The game has changed since early 2003, the part with the blinds flipping up after being shot at is still there but the level just changed. I watched the e3 videos so much that I got weird deja vu several times in the game when I saw the reworked areas. I must say though, the AI and the storyline...

    Can't connect to it my fault?

    I get the message that I "Could not connect to the steam network". I am wondering if it is a problem with my connection, even though I can access the net, do I have to unblock some port or do something like that? I don't know anything about "ports." The steam website is crawling but the server...

    Steam Problem....

    It says in the box how to do it without logging into steam. You have to select "remember my password" and then an offline mode will be available. I took that from the little orange insert in the box.

    I love watching the half life 2 bink videos

    I just watch these things over and over. I love the music of the Coast video, and I love the ravenholm and trainstation vids. And anything with striders in it is a must see. It's so pathetic that I am salivating over just videos...I can't wait until the game comes out! Does anybody know...

    Nintendo DS: Price Announced! Final Specs, Launch Date, New Images

    I am looking forward to the PSP. I think the dual screens of the DS are not going to be very useful, and the wireless chat capability looks a little lame. Up to 100ft? Why would I be text messaging someone 100ft away? It was mentioned "do it in class" but that's not very viable either, easier...

    BSOD errors

    Hey, I've got a problem I haven't had to deal with before. My computer keeps giving me stop errors (on a blue screen, of BSOD fame) saying that the files win32k.sys and ntoskrnl.exe are doing something (bad, presumably). It says at the top, "KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED". What does all this...

    What does +/-RW mean on a dvd drive?

    Thanks. And the way I got here without knowing this is twofold: I posted 90% of my messages about 3-4 years ago, then dropped out of the PC world for a while. Also, I usually post in the games, displays, and photography/art sections.
