I have updated the Windows XP Services Configurations to reflect default settings for Windows XP Professional x64 Edition.

Now, after 3 hours of single player gameplay, I will only be able to recall the initial difficulties with the Steam network because of this text. Half-Life 2’s graphics and gameplay totally wiped all Rants from my memory and I have had [Continue Reading]
