Then again, I could be completely wrong - I'm not a big Steam user.
I know he was refering to Steam as that is the only thing I currently know of that allows preloading of games. But since we were talking about the IV store and not Steam, I thought that it might be a good idea to tell him where he went wrong before we go into a massive misunderstanding.

Ah, alright.

... wow, my first and second posts on these forums, and they're almost entirely useless. Not a good start.


Don't worry. Just look at xander. He's got about 785 posts, and I can't even begin to speculate on how useful each one is ;)

Round,
Like a circle in a spiral
Like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning
On an ever-spinning reel
Like a snowball down a mountain
Or a carnival balloon
Like a carousel that's burning
Running rings around the moon
Like a clock whose hands are sweeping
Past the minutes of its face
And the world is like an apple
Rolling silently in space
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind
