Heh, I mmanaged to cut the cord on AOL around 1997-8, I feel your pain, I just it the bullet and did it :)
What? You mean you severed all business ties or AOL is just hard to cancel? I've heard that it is.

guys... you don't "send the entire game" to them.

you see the "1 Gift" in your "My Games" tab, you click that, type in an email address, and steam sends them an invitation to DOWNLOAD the game, from steam

I just assumed that he tried to send the whole damn game when he said that the email wouldn't go through.  Obviously, I wasn't thinking too straight that day, possibly due to the smoke.

speaking of HL2, if I buy the boxed version in a shop can a dial-up connection handle the online registration ?

Should be, just make sure that you disable auto-patch.

Yeah, I did it.  It took a while though.  Of course, I hadn't loaded Steam up in weeks, but it spent hours scanning for game updates.  Then I could finally put the CD key in, then I had to install the games from the disk, THEN it had to update them before they were playable.  Took about two days or so, and all I have so far is Portal, and about 30% of Episode 1
Could we with ink the ocean fill, and were the skies of parchment made
Were every stalk on earth a quill, and every man a scribe by trade
To write the love of God above, would drain the ocean dry
Nor could the scroll contain the whole, though stretched from sky to sky!

Stealth, don't know if you received my PM or not...
Should have gotten something on the 25th.

Anyone out there want Half Life 2?  I'll give it to you

Wait! Is it opened or sealed? If you installed it, you can't give it to other.

If he got it off Steam, he can give it to someone as a gift if he already had it.

EDIT: :welcomeorange: Johnny!

Huh? I have a old GOTY HALF-LIFE 2 from a man who gave it me. but Steam said "A CD Key may only be registered to one Steam account" I think CDs are banned

So, I got another HALF-LIFE 2.

I tried to install HALF-LIFE: Source on my HD

He must have already used the key. Once a key is used, it can't be removed from the Steam account.

That's suck... To reset the CDs, $10.  :sigh:

well, you see, the way it works now, if you install a copy of a game already registered to your account, registers that game as a "gift," and you have one copy to give to a friend and have it registered under their steam account.  So, even though I bought Halflife 2 a couple years ago, I just bought Orange Box, that includes HL2, and the entire Orange Box is on one CD Key.  But steam noticed I already had Halflife 2, and I have a copy of HL2 to give free of charge to a friend.
