    Arrggghhh, what's up with Steam these days? Is it just me, or are loads of the games unable to patch themselves? It seems that whenever I want to play something Steam wants to download a many-gigabyte update.

    It's always done it with Arma 2, which was very irritating, but it now does it with Wings of Prey, Battlefield 2 and the evening it wants to download a 5gig update to Race Room Experience. How can it possibly be 5 gig when I only have 1 track and a couple of cars?

    It's gobbling all my bandwidth.

    Ahem, rant over :)

    Looks like you need to be paid a visit from Mr Branson. ;)
