1. Hey there Guest,

    The game servers have moved to semi-dedicated hardware and IPs have changed. Please see front page server widget for up-to-date game server information.

I have some bad news.

    Ladies, gentlemen, those of no assigned gender, I have some bad news for you all. I can't access Steam.

    I have no idea why, but it's not just me, it's my brother too. I've played around with all the settings on our router, but to no avail. The only games I can play are Portal and the two HL2 episodes. Basicly, things've gone down the shitter. So, until this poor thing gets fixed, it's no Steam for ol' Tom. If anyone has a problem similar, then I'd love to hear from you in this thread, or...PM or email me.

    I can access every, and anything else on the internet. Even the Steam website. I can use P2P (that's not the problem, unless by using it my ISP have limited my traffic/broken mah steamz), I can download 400MB files in Chrome. Hell, I've just reinstalled Windows 7. I'm starting to lose hope now. I just hope I can get back online within the next week, as I need to work on my L4D campaign with DaBeatzProject, and Boojum will shout at me if I don't run another gameday soon :p.

    See ya all around,

    Tom 'zpqrei' Pritchard.

    EDIT: I love tags, and whoever told me to delete my ClientRegistry.blob. Could everyone spam-thanks him for it?

    It wouldn't connect to the Steam servers, so I had to start in Offline mode. See above. Give him love.

    I can't believe you didn't know that fix. It's almost as legendary as "have you turned it off and back on again?".

    You used foul language and had your email in a url link instead of an email link.
    /me points to awesome post version comparison feature you can see if you click on the "Last edit by:" link.

    Bah, humbug. I've seen much worse language coming from the mouths of some of these members, much worse than mentioning a part of the body.
