so its a long weekend. what's the first thing that crosses my mind?
THREE WHOLE DAYS OF UNINTERRUPTED GAMING! :nana:

that is until i booted up steam and was royally cockblocked but the updater. It seems to be stuck! it reads:
'steam-updating -0% complete
Updating steam platform...'

but the bars not moving and it doesn't appear to be doing anything. so i backed up those files and chucked them on the other partitioned drive, then un-installed and reinstalled and its still doing it.

now im just getting pissed off cause i could be smashing cunts up in cod :<

help?! :cry:

so i realise im taking to myself...
but incase anyone has these issues:

I still couldnt log in after it updated. it just took forever then timed out and gave me the standard 'check your interwebs or visit our website.'

what i ended up doing is deleting the clientregistry.blob file and restarted steam. worked a treat!

Cheers to my buddy for sorting me out.

Yeah, I've never had any problems with Steam but I always see the "delete clientregistry.blob" solution crop up, so it's always worth a try!

Steam can be like that sometimes.I've had many issues with it, but lately it's been running fine for me.I made a thread about not that long ago ( it's the one with bad spelling errors in the heading).Glad you've sorted it all out.

I don't understand why Steam and PSN haven't copied Xbox LIVE entirely. Superior online service is superior.

I completely agree with Cletus. Let us all take a moment and be thankful for just how good a service Microsoft provides us with Xbox Live. Now eat this piece of bread. Amen.

I'd actually use Steam if it were Xbox LIVE good. But it isn't.
