    Steam Connection Issue

    Post by Dave on Sun 29 Jan 2012, 3:20 am

    Hey guys-

    Having an issue logging into Steam. I got an email that a friend gifted me Left 4 Dead 2, and I'd like to go accept it. I'm receiving this error that says "Steam is having trouble connecting to the Steam servers." I'm on a Macbook Pro if that makes a difference. I've Googled extensively and found many questions related to this issue but no answers. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Otherwise - Whats up!!? It's been a long time, but it's good to see this place still kickin'. Catch me up to speed!

    -Dave

    As far as I know it works! I got an email that said "You've received a gift copy of the game Holiday Sale 2011 Gift: Left 4 Dead 2 on Steam". My old roommate, some of you may know him as 'Lowercase n' gifted it to me.

    I'm good man, just working like 60-70 hours per week, hitting the gym 3 days a week, no health problems at all right now. Life is good. I went skydiving last Saturday (Bucket list - CHECK), joined a new ice hockey team, got my 3rrrrrd date with a lady friend coming up tomorrow night. Really, not a care in the world! Started playing MW3 on PS3 and I blow but it's really fun.

    Well well look who we have here! What up Dave!? Call Brian and tell him his shitty gift sucks ass and doesn't work! lol jk.. Good to hear from you man. Been a while. Dude? Skydiving? I envy you bro! Was it tandem?

    Man so much to catch you up in with pcshop... oh wait nevermind, nothing goin' on over here LOL. we've been on an increasing descend ever since Tirant's real life caught up with him and he doesn't have time to code like he used to. Who can blame him though? oh wait a bunch of crying little kids could i guess. But not me, real life is way more kick ass than coding lol. But the community of laidback peoples who love pcshop for it's humbleness have held strong. Really good peoples all around I say, you can be proud of them.

    As for your steam.. did you try reinstalling it? or getting a new version off the valve website??

    Oh geez. I reinstalled, it updated and worked. I feel like those tards at work who come asking me why their computer isn't working, and I tell them it's because they unplugged the power cord with their foot, lol.

    Yes, it was a tandem jump, they forced me. The guy jumping with me is the lead sniper for Dallas SWAT, so that was pretty cool. I have a video I could send you the link to - I don't want to post it on here for all these people to see, lol! Who wants to watch me damn near pass out from fear!? Razz

    Awww shit... you can't be serious, hold on Dave, we're taking this post to another level, it's about PC vs MAC now!!!

    But seriously, you can't be serious..

    MAC OS vs Windows??? No contest, MAC OS takes first prize every time. That's why all final film/audio editing is done on MAC's.

    I'm not one of those Apple occultist who likes everything that Apple makes. I have to have both PC and MAC, cause that's how i am, I can do stuff with one that I can't do with the other, and vise versa. But to say PC>MAC.. Blasphemy!!

    Your probably one of those guys who still thinks macs don't have right click on their mouse. BUT THEY DO!! you just gotta turn it on in settings. =]

    But i still love you Tidal!

    I blow... everyone away at mw3 survival mode! =]

    I play left wing. Two games so far, 2 goals total. Team is 2-0. Our team name is the Chupacabras, lol.

    Macs are more stable, but you can't customize. Basically, PC's are better for techy people. Macs are more trendy and therefore more expensive. I really like the Mac OS though.

    also on a sidenote i assume ur running a windows clone or something along those lines, i also read its only the lastest version of steam having this problem, so you might want to see what the last compatible version of steam was that supported l4d and then go try and find it somewhere and then update backwards so ur runnin an older version of steam so it works, im sure somewhere on the internet u can find an old copy of a former steam update

    You guys need to learn grammar. ">" is a "greater than" symbol... You're accidentally saying "PC is greater than Mac". You guys are lucky I'm here to help you - geez!
