[MENTION=144954]alienempire[/MENTION] well that feature has existed for a year or two now. I think South Korea has one of the fastest average Internet speeds in the world right now.

EDIT: yeah the ISP wise metrics is new

Faced a weird bug on Steam for Linux(Ubuntu 14.04 LTS). I was playing matchmaking and CSGO and the game was somewhat lagging(network issue) so I thought I'd disconenct and reconnect to fix it.

I disconnected and the whole game froze, couldn't move mouse etc. Alt+Tab didn't help much too. I tried starting terminal etc and didn't work. I directly turned off the power(using a Laptop btw) and after the next boot when I ran steam, all my games were gone. There were only "Install" buttons. On checking the directories, thier files were gone too. Oh well :(

It happened with me on Windows too, but the files were there, so when i clicked Install button it detected the files and installed them automatically. check the steamapps folder again it might not be the same directory structure like windows.

Oh dear, Steam bug on Linux... not a good news. I am planning to move to Ubuntu as primary OS. :(
thetechfreak: Do keep us updated. Are the games gone for good?

That's why it's always wise to keep a backup, I had a similar experience some time back, since then always maintain one

Buy games: there are badges rewarding you for owning x amount of games.
Complete card sets: you can get a total 500 xp for completing a card set 5 times. You can complete a card set for under dollar depending on the popularity (most source game card sets will run about a dollar).
Complete FOIL card sets: you can get 100 xp for completing a card set at a maximum of 1 time. Foil card prices can be found for under fifty cents each, or can run you $15+.
Be here forever: you might see people with high levels and not have completed one card set. That's because Valve highly rewards Steam Veterans. You get 50xp per year you've been a steam user. 1 year = 50 xp, 2 years = 50 more xp, and so on.
Complete "Special Challenges": Complete tasks like Summer Sales or Holiday Sales or King of The fort! You will find a nice amount of xp waiting for you.
In all honesty, the more money you spend, the higher level you will be.
