What Does This Button Do?
So two days ago you may or may not have noticed Steam was offline for a hour or so. Immediately internet gossip spread that it was more hackers since Gabe Newell confirmed last week that more info was lost than originally thought in a 2011 attack. However Valve quickly responded by saying it was a power failure. The actual quote from Valve’s twitter was: “Our data center’s [universal power supply] experienced a power failure. Power is back on now and working to get service restored asap.”
Time to employ DON’T TOUCH post-it notes methinks.
