There were lots of CS fans here last year, hundreds and hundreds played(this is before the crippling...), so I know there is a market here. I'm just praying that there is a viable phone activation.

Does anyone else have a similar problem at thier school?

I think we could all look at the bright side, at least you don't have to pay extra to get a steam account... I bet that would irritate a few of you, pay 80 bucks for a game then spend another 9.95 to get and account and have to pay 10 bucks a month to keep it...

Heh, my school did that in my junior year.. it sucked.. although I moved off campus by then, and decided to concentrate on school.. one of my other friends moed off campus too and got DSL instead... and flunked out.. lol and another guy stayed on campus, couldn't play vid games.. very depressing.

I wonder why stupid people always get to be managers or CEO of something important.

When they start looseing money they always blame users or pirates for stealing they perfect products
Thanx DVS ! That little story made my day ! As a designer at a webcompany I'm kinda like that story's tech guy to my projectmanager.
