I have a Steam copy of Company of Heroes which I purchased over a year ago now so therefore I made a Relic account a long time ago. Because it was such a long time ago I have forgotten the login for my account and I am unable to make a new one without getting a new CD key. To be honest it's a bit stupid that I can't play Singleplayer without logging in to an online account.
I have already contacted Steam support but I will ask here anyway so that I hopefully get a quicker response. Am I able to play singleplayer without an online relic account?
Some guy put together a HUUGGEE picture of Obama's Inauguration and it allows you to see pretty much the whole of the crowd who were there as well as Obama himself. Awesome stuff.
Creator of Image said:
"My final photo is made up of 220 Canon G10 images and the file is 59,783 X 24,658 pixels or 1,474 megapixels. It took more than six and a half hours for the Gigapan software to put together all of the images on my Macbook Pro and the completed TIF file is almost 2 gigabytes."

I'm pretty pleased with the update, seems to have fixed most of the annoyances I had with the game and Versus mode now seems to be a whole lot fairer for both sides.
Laggy servers are really starting to piss me off because I have yet to find a server that doesn't have teleporting zombies so now I have just given up on looking for one. Playing singleplayer is getting boring and frustrating, I want 4 player co-op godamnit!
Anyone else having problems with laggy Dedicated servers?
When I try to change my email address in the 'Edit Profile' page the page will just refresh and the old email will still be there. I am trying to change the email address using Firefox 3 and Windows XP.
Another bug on the 'Edit Profile' page that I noticed was that the 'Zip' option seems to be filled with my username and I cannot change that either using the same browser and operating system.
