As a level designer, I am constantly frustrated by how laggy and shitty software steam is.

The biggest problem is that even though it is 8+ years old, it is still as buggy as when hl2 was released.

Imagine this: I was making a map for l4d2. I started the compile process and the compiler showed progress in cli mode. i wondered what happened because normally it doesn’t show progress in cli mode.

Then it stopped. I patiently waited for over 15 minutes. Then I restarted steam. Turned out, stupid steam was updating the game. Even after updating, my maps weren’t getting compiled. Sick of it, I started playing bfbc2.

Even nowadays, steam still has a lot of unresolved bugs, Offline mode doesn’t work properly.

Steam sometimes crashes randomly( Although it crashes very rarely these days)

Valve games update more frequently. Its Not a good sign. When I login to steam after a long time, all my games are getting updated. Its quite sickening, frankly.

Steam is a great piece of software. Unfortunately, it’s potential can only be harnessed if you have a good internet connection and a good computer.

Hey everyone, I recently made a grid system in css.

For those interested, it is totally fluidic and responsive. And it also supports offsetting( Just like bootstrap’s grid)

Here is the link.

… sound like they are drowning. Seriously.

Have you ever seen people ask for help like this:

Somehow, stackoverflow’s strict rules seem proper now.

This is a different take on why lectures suck.

Example : My faculty was teaching wt( Web technology[ html, css, javascript and some php ] )

First day

Teacher : Alright people, I am so and so and I am going to teach you all web technology.

Me : ( I hope this class is interesting )

Teacher : … so now open a new txt file and start typing some blah blah

Now try this all in the practicals, Ok?

Me : Shit, this one is going downhill.

5 Minutes later

Teacher : Now use the bg color attr to add background color to your body tag.

Me : What about web standards??? 

Author’s note : Arguing with the teacher is equivalent to arguing with a corpse so I keep mum.

Teacher : Now use the b tag and blah blah

Me : Fascinating, I never knew all this tags existed. Its like taking history classes in html.


Teacher : So expect some tags to not work in internet explorer.


Teacher : blah blah …

Me :

Teacher : And so blah blah …

Me : Spaces off and stares at a random girl’s boobs.

As you can see, I wasn’t taught about history of the html spec, semantics, accessibility and of course, html5 for the whole semester.

College lectures suckass.
