Read on…

I was having a conversation with sgt_dragun, which looks like this:

So, with nothing else to do (except for a LONG list of stuff…)
Let’s start off with Steam?

Right click on Dota 2

Select properties

Now, select Set Launch Options

And type in -novid

Click Ok

Then Close

  • I write your name in my breath on the window, Sit and watch as it fades away
  • Hi honey.
    Guess what I did at work today?
    I wore a bomb.
    A nuclear bomb in a field of flowers.
    I could get lucky.
    Tomorrow I could have a bigger bomb.
    I could kill more people.
    Maybe they'll be innocent people.
    Children, maybe.
  • "You are like a plague, John Crichton,
    and you have ruined my life . . .
    and yet
    I just keep coming back."
  • I'll watch the night turn light blue
    But it's not the same without you
    Because it takes two to whisper quietly
    The silence isn't so bad
    Till I look at my hands and feel sad
    Cause the spaces between my fingers
    Are right where yours fit perfectly
