    :laugh: you have to love multiple screen setups, I have a tv show playing on the left, browser and chat in the middle and portal's count down on the right. :D

    These 4 hours are going to need a lot of distractions to help them pass relatively faster.

    But if the servers are to busy to authenticate it then come the delays, so many games i have tried to play with a group of friends on launch day someone always has trouble getting it to launch due to how busy the servers are.... I admit they get there in the end but still :p

    pro tip: setup a Gmail account, use a strong password and set the recovery stuff to SMS your phone and a secondary new email account (not Gmail, i used yahoo)


    i've never had mine even attempted to be hacked, let alone a succesful attempt. never link stuff like steam to an email address that is exposed to the public, such as hotmail tied into your MSN accounts...



    28 minutes!
