Honestly, who takes a sword to a burglary? Guns are both easier to conceal and make it easier for you to take more stuff. I really have to consider just getting a sword or something and training with it for defense of my home. An armed populace is a good thing. :)
I guess he thought he would look cool, well, I think he looks pretty cool sliced up like a bee-yotch.

I just bought Half Life 2 from Target.  Yet I can't play it because it says I must login before I play.  Yet because AOL is junk it wont connect.  Please someone please tell me a way to get around this?  A patch?  A hack?  A crack?  I dont care anymore!  I cant even return it to Target.  *cries to self*

download steam from www.counter-strike.net or whatever the site is, i believe that's the only way to connect via the internet using halflife and halflife based games.

"make 15 tiles for my mobile phone puzzle game, get 10$ "

No I have steam.† That hunk of junk came with the disk.† I got steam to update yet when try to login it wont connect.† Sigh... *continues to cry*

I still have no intention of ever playing Half Life 2 online or ever updating it.  Yet those brilliant people at valve seem to have forgot their Dial up and non internet connected audiences.  You must connect with valve at least once before you can unlock offline mode...  Yes...  Iím serious.  Also you must download the newest patch or version of the game you connect with.  Valve will automatically connect every time you are online.  If your game has been marked out of date you cannot play it offline or online until it is updated.  Brilliant.

my suggestion to you is to look on either one of the torrent sites or packetnews.com for a hacked version of the game, and get the crack, or find someone who has a hacked version and get a crack. I know it kind of defeats the purpose of buying the game, but at least you can feel all warm and fuzzy inside for paying the $$ for it. BTW, it's an excellent game, single player version, i heard the multiplay makes it too easy for newbies.
