Out of the Blue

Happy birthday to Redwood, the O.G. Quake webmaster. It's hard to believe it's been over 20 years since we met, since he was probably about 20 at the time. Red and his work were an inspiration for me, and he was an early supporter of this site, so you probably wouldn't be reading these words were it not for him. I'm raising a glass to you today, Redwood, even if I have to hire a cherry picker to get reach it up to you.

Blue, are you having trouble staying online tonight or is STEAM giving you a hard time? I've seen the notification 'Blue is online' about twelve times in the last two hours. Not complaining, just concerned...and curious.

EDIT: Make that fourteen times now.

I'm battling Steam right now. I noticed a client update notification, which is for an October 11th patch. I tell it to install, and it retarts, but still says the same update is available.

I can still play games, which is different from all the posts I've found about client update problems. I've tried restarting my computer, and I've tried deleting the download cache, but the problem persists. Hence all the restarts.

This was my way of seeing how deficient Steam's support section seems to be. There's a Steam Client area, that has no option to cover my problem, and no way to research a problem they don't list.

In desperation I've turned to the Steam Support forums. We'll see what happens.

Ah, I see. I had a somewhat similar problem a few weeks ago where it would update, supposedly, and that was it. It wouldn't log in or start proper, it would just keep trying to update (and seemingly fail). My solution was to reinstall STEAM under safe mode. Later on, where I got hit again, I just ran the update under safe mode and logged in also under safe mode and there after I haven't had a problem. Try doing it in safe mode and see if it helps any.
