Yeah, it was Jonny. You should go check up on him, and probably yourself. I don't see why you or him would comment anything bad other than me exposing you two mongoloids for not paying attention.

Yep. Steam just went down. Asked my roomie if his went down, and it had just gone down for him too. Refreshed the page to see the start of a flood of reports. I had literally just finished destroying a team of Bills in DBD that were trying to sub in for one another, and figured they might be DDOSing me, lol.

I don't know exactly why it's not working, but when I start a new game (I've played a few hours) the game wants me to login with Steam, but I don't have a Steam account, or any way to find my account. I just opened a console, and ran cat /proc/last_kmsg , and it had -3. Steam kept saying it couldn't open the connection, but as I recall that only happens with some applications.

Ejecting the DVD drives keeps the wifi adapter's wifi power. I noticed that if I use this adapter on it's lowest speed, the wifi goes off completely.

Steam not working anymore? Check if there's any mod or batch file that changed your scripts files. If there is, see these fix for running this tool on SE + Xenobl

Steam not working? Use forageNotify plugin if you are having problems.

Shaders may break on multi-threaded profiles due to the way that queue in this scenario behaves.

Can I change my settings in

Yes, go to options->genetics, as described under Options -> Startup. You can change the chart with the realtime one and setup the selection method. For the random charts it may require pressing the esc key before seeing the chart.

If Steam fails to launch automatically, or if you are experiencing game crash or freezes, try the following troubleshooting steps:

Select "Try Steam again" from the Steam menu and attempt to launch the game.

If your issue persists, restart your computer.

If that still does not work, contact Steam Support.

Other notes:

In order to fix a crash you are likely experiencing in the launcher, do the following:

Make sure you do not have a conflict in your video card drivers. This will often resolve the issue.

Make sure you have the latest drivers installed for your graphics card. This will often resolve the issue.
