While the Green Steam client is nostalgic as hell, I can't help but to remember all of the bad memories I have with it. Like how it would be locked up whenever I tried to use it and I was only able to launch my games via shortcuts and via the SteamApps directory (via your username folder, as the common folder didn't exist yet!)

I remember when they launched the beta for the new client; for once Steam actually functioned on my PC! While it wasn't as sleek as the old design, I was willing to forfeit it for functionality.

Pictured is when I was in the Steam Beta back in 2010. To think this was back in February 26th of 2010, holy cow...

...were any of you even alive in 2010?

Did you know that on Valve's Curator page on Steam there's a section for the Half-Life series? On said HL series page, there's a shocking lack of Half-Life. However, Half-Life: Source (the bad option) is at full display and is considered apart of the Half-Life series.

This is unacceptable. Valve, please fix.

(the page is also advertised with a pre-release Opposing Force screenshot, smh my head)

Did you know that Opposing Force has entire UTIL function just to display a randomized haiku on the screen?

For what reason? Dunno.

Bind the command "haiku" to a button via the console and press said key in-game, it will display a haiku built from a select amount of phrases provided in the code base.

(doesn't work in multiplayer)

Despite what those may believe, "xen.bsp" from P4HL is not official and neither is P4HL itself.

P4HL is just a mod that integrates Perforce directly into Half-Life's game logic.

I can't identify where exactly this disc came from. It is an Uplink CD (just the installer and the redbook tracks required by Uplink) that was mastered on April 5th, 1999. I can't find any other mention of it beyond a post on the Something Awful forums (which was just someone mentioning they found it from Goodwill.)

I theorize its an OEM disc or something potentially handed out at game stores in 1999. I don't think its some "hey my internet sucks and I want to checkout Uplink" disc you could of gotten from Sierra as I purchased my disc as new and I doubt someone would of requested the disc and never played it. I also know it is not the ATi OEM disc, as that is a Counter-Strike 1.3 OEM disc (I also own it and have archived it.)

Does anyone know where this came from?
