So I have 2 HL/CS computers in the house.
I have to do the "download" twice? What exactly was wrong with the way things worked before, where I could dl the upgrade file and patch both my machines myself (and supply it to other CS players on my website)??? You have to ask this. The answer is the usual, follow the MONEY.
Thanks Valve for pushing a restrictive, botched, single-stream solution on us in your neverending quest for big vacation houses.
These guys are 15 minutes from MS HQ and it really shows.
