btw it looks like I have to rebuild the nvidia kernel module again even though I had passed on the last kernel update. or my card is dying I don't know. I don't have the money yet to buy a geforce 610.
Another problem is I made the mistake to buy the hl1 mods on a separate account, this could be useful but to switch account you have to fully enter name and password ; to have the option to choose account on startup the last used account name is written in the field already but you have to enter password. No remembering the password, as when you just use a single account.
I would like to click account one, or account two, then click "login" and be done but Valve makes it painful.
I don't even touch my first account where there are a few games I've never played (Penumbra etc., Steel Storm) but no Counterstrike, if I want to rid of the hassle I'm forced to buy Counterstrike 1 again, but I don't want to do that at full price (10 euros). I don't know when it will be at 3.x euros again. So in the end I very rarely launch Steam.
