True...there's not much you can do with local. The local usenet is useless and there's only so much local browsing you can do.

you could always create a script to loop and keep downloding iso's from IS :)

Games played locally: Warcraft III on gateway war3.co.za, world of warcraft on SA servers, Call of duty 4, havent tried Crysis yet. I wish there were a work-around for steam games such as Counter-Strike, Team Fortress 2. We should get our very own local steam server where we also edit the gateway, similar to how Warcraft III works, that would be the *****. It would probably be to much to ask for a steam server that also host the update files.
