But then how would you run it in a browser?
It's not required, no. At least not anymore, not sure if it used to be. The self-contained installer is sufficient to develop with.
powdered material could take the same stresses that a drop-forged or milled object can
Among other things the Rolls Royce Trent engines in the Airbus A380 have a turbine disk made from metal powder. Of course the secret is that it's effectively drop-forged metal powder (hot isostatic pressing) which then is cleaned up to the correct tolerances with milling.
But I can guarantee you that there was no way to get into offline mode at that time
Since you called me a liar with your "Apparently you're supposed to know ahead of time when your Internet connection will die for a week" what sort of value do you think I'm going to place on that guarantee? You appear to be scum that take politeness as weakness. I should have just called you out as a liar to start with instead of politely giving a real example to counter your deliberate misinformation.
You most certainly cannot start Steam in this state
Bullshit. You can start the games without any network connectevity at all which IMHO is what they should all fall back too apart from the obvious multiplayer ones where the actual program needs a network to function.
So now I'm getting curious - I know that you are wrong and I'm betting that you know as well, so what is the motivation for you pushing the bullshit? Is this some fanboy thing where you have decided you have to claim that team B suffers from the same problems as team A that you are cheering for?
Apparently you're supposed to know ahead of time when your Internet connection will die for a week.
In my recent experience, nothing like that at all. All it takes is for you to pull your network cable out for a couple of minutes to demonstrate - but of course you are not going to do that becuase it ruins your story.
I really don't care about steam one way or the other but lying pricks deliberately misleading the kiddies here just for the purpose of cheerleading really gets my goat. You really should be ashamed of yourself _xeno_ since this is no innocent mistake, it's deliberate deception.
To get Steam into Offline mode, you must first connect to Steam.
I was changing between net connections a few months ago - three weeks with no internet, and due to hot weather I had my computer turned off when I wasn't actually sitting in front of it, so no persistent data from a login. Maybe a minute or two after startup in MS Windows a message about Steam being unable to connect would come up. I played Skyrim ten to twelve times offline during that time.
I had connection problems last week, once again no internet but I could play Skyrim.
So are you sure Steam was down and it wasn't just an authentication problem? I suggest as a learning exercise that you unplug your network connection and have another try. You'll see then what we are talking about here.
I think that's a far better approach than needing to log onto the server before you can play.
parroting feminist talking points
Where did I do that? Oh it's the strawman in your head.
If you weren't so busy seeing muh soggy knees and rapists everywhere
No mention of rapists and whatever "muh soggy knees" is supposed to mean, so once again strawman in your head.
It appears I don't have very much to do with this discussion so why don't you carry it on with yourself offline instead of the stupid fucking cowardly and childish strawman shit in my name?
Also WTF was "Why don't you take it back to jezebel" supposed to mean and WTF did it have to do with either my post or the one above - was it a reply to the strawman in your head again?
you tantrum throwing little poster child
Not the strawman this time, sounds just like you and your rant doesn't it?
It's a pretty sad case when saying something positive about Marie Curie is considered rabid feminism. Would that make me gay if I mentioned Charles Darwin?
They used to kidnap Japanese people for information
Sadly it looks like the information was mostly how long they could live as sex slaves before they died.
Everybody wins apart from N.K. and whoever in S.K. lives where some shells might land if N.K. wants to use artillery again to express their displeasure.
