Ive had trouble with steam client updates.

If it goes wrong in any way during update, you need to delete the clientblob file in your steam directory and then reinstall steam over your current install using the installer.

If it fails at 27% during this , delete the clientblob file again.

You will need to put your details back in on the first time you login after this.

Anyone know if you can upgrade from bronze to silver?

Nice little feature I found whilst browsing the forums.

Steam Backup
type
steam://backup/
in a browser e.g. Internet Explorer or whatever your using and up pops a little backup window for Steam which compresses your steam files into handy little compressed images for cutting to CD or DVD.

Since its not advertised by Valve yet the peeps in the forum don't know what support you may get if a restore fails. Saying that your just stuck with downloading it again

"u cant unless you pay full prive for the silver package! very gay! "

Not gay, the whole point of the packages was to make a saving by buying more things at once, you can't expect the same discount when buying all the bits after... What would be the point in the packages?!

You can buy the individual games on steam.
