There is huge amount of information in that Half-Life thread. Here is an interesting piece of information - new media is apparently around the corner (unless I have missed it?)
Gabe what's your family like?
Wow. I didn't think anyone would care! Haha. My wife is good, expecting a child in a few months. By the way, I recieved your message on my machine. The Half-Life2 media will be released tomorrow, July 1st.
