In addition to the suggestions made by other posters, you also need to
provide information about your ISP, as well as the connection between you
and the Internet (e.g. Is there a firewall or some form of NAT?)

Which version of CS have you installed? If you bought a Boxed CD then
you will need to visit www.steampowered.com and update it to the
latest version (1.6) If you already have 1.6 and a steam account then
you need to tell us what error messages you get.

That sounds very much like CS1.5 to me, 1.6 as far as I can remember
(I haven't played in a few weeks and it's currently updating so I
can't run it) does not have the quickstart option as it uses the
servers window from the steam client

Did you start the steam client then click games then click Counter
Strike?
When you start CS do you get a menu with horrible rough looking text
that "glows" when you select it and fills almost the full height of
the screen or do you get a picture of some cops with the steam logo in
the bottom right and some clean white text in the bottom left with
options to find servers or start a new game etc?

If you get anything but a picture of some cops with the steam logo in
the bottom right then you are not running 1.6.

If this is the case and you are running an old version then the reason
will be that, there aren't many old style WON servers left so the
horrible quickstart option will find any old server and try to connect
even if it's on the other side of the world and will most likely fail
the old WON authentication will soon be switched off (July 31st) and
anything below CS1.6 will not work at all on-line.

CS just finished updating when you start CS if the screen looks
different to this http://www.techaddict.net/csscreen/ then you are
running an old version and need to update. This is a screenshot off
the first screen you get when you run the current CS1.6 release (no
skin packs etc)

Report me for what and to whom? Firstly you are cross-posting to my
group so you would be a hypocrite for even thinking about it and
secondly cross-posting is not forbidden, in fact it is specifically
referred to as being OK in RFC 1855

see http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc1855.html

"If you feel an article will be of interest to more than one
Newsgroup, be sure to CROSSPOST the article rather than individually
post it to those groups."

Also as I did not start this cross-posted thread and alt groups are
unmoderated, even if there were rules against cross-posting, there is
not much you can do to me.

As I stated, I have not broken any rules.
The only body you could have reported me to is my ISP and as I have
not broken any rules they cannot do anything.
You never stated which group you subscribe to for me to remove it from
the original posters list.
I have never used abusive or offensive language.
USENET is a medium for free discussion which is what I am doing.
Your first reply in this thread was unhelpful and dismissive, people
come to these groups for discussion and help. Simply pointing them to
search engines is not in the spirit of USENET groups.
Nobody else seems to be bothered by my posts and if they are they have
simply done what you should have done and either added me to their
killfile or simply ignored the thread.

I thought seriously about returning the favour and reporting you to
your ISP but you have not broken any rules either and besides, to do
so would be stooping to your level.

I think perhaps you have found yourself out of your depth. Unable to
offer a firm position in a discussion which arose because of your
dismissive post, simply pointing someone who had asked for help to a
search engine, you have had a juvenile tantrum. To quote one of your
earlier posts in this thread "Someone's got sand in their knickers,
haven't they?"

I have now added you to my killfile so any late attempt at salvaging
some kind of dignity for yourself will be wasted.

A simple search of Google Groups shows that in fact www.google.com has been
quoted 589,000 times on Usenet, more than any other single phrase. It would
seem that guiding people towards Google is precisely what Usenet exists for.

Two words: Off Topic.

No, *I* haven't broken any rules.

Yes, but you're actually reading this aren't you? You say you've added me
to your killfile, but in fact I know you are reading this with the morbid
curiosity usually reserved for car crashes or gaping wounds.

Of course, you're reading it from the local library as I had you deleted
from the internet but you're still reading it.

Perhaps you don't know that most killfiles don't take effect for postings
currently being replied to. That's why you see posters saying *PLONK*
while doing the permanent killfile.

By the way, *PLONK*.

I don't see why you did the <sarcasm>, I really haven't done anything wrong
here. Usenet is meant to be all about free speech and here these people are
trying to censor me when all I did was offer help and support.

I have just reported you to the internet for crossposting too (I know you're
