Geezer and Carbon based biped, with a fondness for hard cheese, Amigas, synthesised noises and competing in sprint triathlons.

Unix geek at heart, Mac user since 10.4 so still a little green on some things (Dog cow? Teh snappy?), but familiar to some extent with almost every current computing platform know to man, and some that aren't.

comment Xbox Controllers on Windows
This helps a lot, I think I want an XBOX Wireless one, because then I don't have to have black... but I don't get how you tell which is which gen (or even know the differences, or if it matters)

comment How do you force Steam to use a different account for each Windows user account on the same machine?
Thanks, great answer. I realise there is practically no measure I can take that will prevent someone determined enough to find a workaround. this is more of a convenience thing more than anything, we both have seperate accounts, and want to use them without accidentally users each others accounts. Especially games like Bastion which we both own, and could start accidentally if it was left logged in as each other. The computer lives in the main living area and is fully shared, but all your points are valid and good to share for future readers of the question.

Thanks for your comments. I'm not overly worried about him working around the solution, I know it will be possible, trivial even, but it's more to stop him logging into mine by accident and messing my account up, than any real concern.

Brilliant, knew it would be simple, but most gaming forums inc. steam are blocked from work. Thanks!
