5,000 miles, which isn't LEO. So, Google/PR is kind of lying about that.

That is a many millenium orbit. LEO, IIRC is the space below around 500 miles. Not 5,000 miles. Its lower than GEO, but it...

I kind of almost sort of get the lack of call center for Valve/Steam, but at the same time, the turn around is WAYYYYY too long on a lot of issues. I haven't needed them much, thankfully, but the...
