    There is not a single hitch-hikers guide reference in that towel. I mean, really.

    Finally! I figured it was just me, somehow, since nobody else was ever reporting it. I wonder if they also fixed the problem of those users not showing up in Current Players in the Steam overlay. Because, according to a recent SPUF thread, that was affecting Garry's Mod players as well.

    Noticed the Sharpened Volcano Fragment bug the other day too. I wonder what recent update caused that.

    This is supposed to be "Updated Localization Files" upside down in Unicode. Funnily enough, even Steam's own browser doesn't have the symbol it's using for an upside-down "F".

    Hopefully, this fix will be enough to deter name spoofers who tell pornographic stories over the microphone as well as hackers.

    I'm not sure if I understand this correctly: is this a new feature when editing demos?

    IF you go into thirdprson to run around your map with and taunt, it'll put you back in first person. I assume that this command forces the game to keep you in thirdperson

    I figure that goes without saying since if it weren't, it would be backwards when you turn your head to read it.
