Oh, OK. After I start Steam, I usually left-click on taskbar icon and select game from my default Library tab. While I sometimes leave it running for days, I notice there's a tendency for the connection to drop, so I have to re-start it anyway. Costs me a couple of extra clicks, but the arthritis is not bad yet. [grin]
PayPal recently posted a new Policy Update which includes changes to the PayPal User Agreement. The update to the User Agreement is effective November 1, 2012 and contains several changes, including changes that affect how claims you and PayPal have against each other are resolved. You will, with limited exception, be required to submit claims you have against PayPal to binding and final arbitration, unless you opt out of the Agreement to Arbitrate (Section 14.3) by December 1, 2012. Unless you opt out: (1) you will only be permitted to pursue claims against PayPal on an individual basis, not as a plaintiff or class member in any class or representative action or proceeding and (2) you will only be permitted to seek relief (including monetary, injunctive, and declaratory relief) on an individual basis.
With so many privacy policies changing to include such wording, does it really hold any weight if some obscure and buried opt-out option isn't checked?
"Steam's always running...."
Huh? How does it hide from top?
When I start it via Desktop shortcut, it shows up in taskbar and system monitor process tab. When I right-click and exit it from taskbar, it's gone. Do you mean to say it's hidden or masked as another process?
"/home/myusername/.cxoffice/Steam/desktopdata/cxmenu/Desktop.C^5E3A^5Fusers^5FPublic^5FDesktop/Steam.lnk" is the command for the shortcut. Is there something in there that I should be leery of? [sorry 'bout the control codes, didn't edit or look them up]
Real Users never know what they want, but they always know when your program doesn't deliver it.
