    Steam has been messed up since I went to IE8. Like it doesn't remember that I'm logged in and in the store it refuses to let me past age checks.

    Anyone else hit this behavior?

    EDIT to avoid double post:

    Can I get an invite to the penny arcade steam group? Steam Id is Fantastic Damage.

    maybe we should put that in the OP, right next to where it tells people which games can be registered on steam. Because surely that'd mean that no one will ever ask about it :P

    Someone help.

    I love TF2.

    The game got updated a while ago and I turned on steam. It downloaded for like 2 minutes then just goes to "Download starting..."

    I got pissed after restarting steam a hundred times and deleting the client blob and so i deleted the entired tf2 and tried to start downloading it again.

    it still says "download starting"

    I'd go for offline mode - online mode switches and changing download server.

    Should that fail I would send Gabe a very angry letter.

    Pac Man's character is difficult to explain even to the Japanese -- he is an innocent character. He hasn't been educated to discern between good and evil. He acts more like a small child than a grown-up person. Think of him as a child learning in the course of his daily activities. If someone tells him guns are evil, he would be the type to rush out and eat guns. But he would most probably eat any gun, even the pistols of policemen who need them.

    I've heard of people sending e-mails to Gabe's address and getting back responses from other Valve employees like Chet. I assume it acts like a company wide e-mail address.

    I often get this when downloading a game, but it's actually downloading in the background and only says it's starting the download. Could that be the case with you?

    It usually fixes itself after a few minutes, but not always IIRC.

    You can also double click the game and if it's not actually done it'll come up with a window telling you how long it should take to finish downloading.

    Unless you've got a US credit card and address, your only other option is to have someone stateside gift it to you and either pay them back or gift them something else back in return.

    True story:
    On facebook, a guy called "Gabe Newell" added me as a friend. He even had a picture of Gabe as his profile pic.

    They then invited me to an event called "Sleepover". Location: My Pants.

    I don't think that was the real Gabe Newell.

    I don't think it was the real Gabe either, but you should go to that sleepover just in case it is :winky:

    Well, Gabe is flying out to LaCabra's house. Although I'm not sure that they specified it was actually going to be a sleepover, or in fact, in his pants.

    That announcement was on the Penny Arcade group. I found it very entertaining. I wouldn't say the Steam group is COMPLETELY worthless... Just mostly worthless.

    Unless they've changed their password retrieval system, you can go back to an old email and use the same number as the last time you forgot your password (unless you never have before).

    Someone hacked my Steam account and changed all of the details, and I couldn't get my password back. I don't think I ever even tried getting it reset, though. I just bought a new account.
