As usual, Valve ignores the massive load during Xmas sales and lets everyone try to connect to their hideously overloaded servers...

I guess making a billion+ dollars in revenues isn't enough for anyone to wheel their desk over and put some extra capacity in place, Gabe?


Having a infrastructure backbone beefy enough to handle holiday sale loads just isn't an interesting enough project for Valve to work on.

Same thing with package carriers, do you build a system to handle a day or a week? Or do you build a system that handles the rest of the year at a reduced cost?

How can millions of people stream movies, that is like omg an always online connection to the internet. Where's the revolt? Being planet Earth in the year of 2012, you know which way they are going 100 out of 100 times and it's not even a bad decision any time.
