Are any of you experiencing download issues with the Steam client? I've been trying to download Borderlands all day, but I am not able to due to second-second fluctuations in download speed (as in one second it's downloading, the other second it's not). It's getting annoying, and I was wondering if this is normal right now.

well with all the sales going on, I've heard a lot of people having download issues on steam. There's just too much downloading going on at once, curse the sales!

I'm about to make a comment that could be totally naïve and wrong, but doesn't Steam operate somewhat like a bittorent client?

No. It is not a bittorrent.

It was doing the same thing when I tried to get TQ, but, it seems to be working now. I would just give it some time. I tried pausing and unpausing with no results

It keeps denying my card. I sent an issue through support, but by the time they get through to me, the sale will be over.

My card was used earlier today, so it can't be a bank issue. I even contacted them to make sure.

you could also open a post explaning your situation, maybe someone getting a 4 pack will help you out, he only has to save it untill you pay him.

sorry to hear.
