    well u should on average get about 60kb/s, my half life folder including about 20 mods, patches, updates and maps is 1.9gb, u do the maths :D

    hl itself is only about 500mb i think tho

    dod = Day of Defeat
    hl = Half-Life
    cs = Counterstrike


    Oh, and if anybody wants an interesting site to visit that will work well on broadband (due to the loading times), then visit www.heavy.com

    Fast connection? Static IP?

    As soon as you get online, you must get a firewall. You think that it may never happen to you, but I was hacked on Tuesday (11th Feb). Now I have learnt the lesson.

    Antivirus companies Norton and McAfree both writes firewalls. Windows XP has one built in but it is only effective against common incoming attacks. Outbound information can still be leaked. Zone Alarm and Blackice both fare as two of the better ones.
