I wouldn't worry about it too much now that I think about it. Valve seems to be pretty efficient at getting rid of the source code it seems, and all that I think this is going to do on a larger scale is build up the hype for it.

I'm hyped, for one Wink

well if it really is out there, it will just get posted on some hacker forums anyways. And I'd like to see Valve catch them if they create a new account though 10 proxys.

Though if it was just a part of the code, then its all just publisity - and HL2 is getting just that now

no, of course not. that's why they spent millions of dollars to make a sequel. Rolling Eyes

EDIT: that's assuming you mean HL, considering the only people playing HL2 right now are pretty much just those who work at valve

the valve e-mail server was hacked and they've been getting Denial of Service attacks since 3 weeks ago.

during that time, the code was taken.

valve is very pissed off about this but in the long run, I don't see any major damage since I believed they were to open source it anyways with an SDK.
