Yeah no idea....I tried "connecting in Offline Mode" on my notebook on the weekend (Sunday) just to ensure a couple of my freshly installed games would play alright, as said, its imperative I can connect in Offline Mode....boom didn't work.
Tried connecting in "offline Mode" on my Desktop and it didn't work....checked Steam Forums and sure enough it was a Client update from Feb 19th that buggered it for everyone. No biggie..wait for another Update to fix it.
Started Steam on my Desktop this evening,,,,great..new client update to repair "Offline Mode", install n re-start Steam...works..happy times!!!
Run the same Client Update on my Notebook....Restart Steam....same friggin error...dammit...
As of about an hour ago my notebook still wouldn't work in Offline Mode...

the thing is I've spent the better part of a day n ahlf setting the Goddam thing up after a Clean Install of W7 from the Asus Recovery Disc..now I'm wondering if I pooched something in the set-up...Can't connect to Steam Network" error is all I keep getting when I try to start in Offline Mode....

the new UI is nice, but a lot of empty space.
