Hey all,

My brother has just bought Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Bad Company 2 Vietnam and the SPECACT Kit Upgrade off of Steam, but as we currently only get 10GB a month I was wondering if someone else who has bought the games off Steam would be willing to copy them onto some DVD's and send them to us if thats possible? Will pay for postage and DVD's etc. 


If anyone's willing let me know :)

Haha nice idea, even if it did take a whole day...

My brother ended up decideing he'd get up really early for a few days and make the most of our free off peak data. Its a real pain that Steam doesnt have a scheduler.

Thanks anyway Leslie :)

Pretty sure programs like netlimiter do allow you to schedule programs access to the net based on time




Most problems are the result of previous solutions...

i read somewhere canada was doing this (re: simililar to steam trading) .. the reasoning was SSDs per GB cheaper than the ISP ... so makes sense NZ Post would be :) maybe shouldn't tell them that.

Mate bought the Valve pack yesterday... It's easier for him to drive up from welly and copy mine than to download himself at crappy speeds.
