Welcome to Tuesday at 4pm PST.

Enjoy your stay.


On the annoying side I just got home and opened Steam up to see it downloaded an update and wanted to restart, without considering the fact Steam would likely be down for maintenance. Meh.

I wish they could do this in the morning like every other online company in the world.

Instead of, you know....right after the majority gets home from work/school.

I agree. It's really annoying to get home after work, or just after finishing dinner and finding out Steam is down.

I'm nearly positive that valve took their data and extrapolated the time that the least amount of people are using the steam services and made their maintenance coincide with that. Yes, annoying for some, but it could be worse.

PSN anybody?

Why don't they do it at 4PM rather than 12AM or 1AM or something at night where many people aren't on?

Their data showed them the time when the least amount of people are using the service, this is when they do it.
