If you want to play a Steam game offline, you have to put it into offline mode while you're online. Case in point, my internet went down for a few hours so I thought I'd play some more HL2... but no.
It's a minor failing, but IMO it's something that should be fixed somehow.
Hmm, when I lose my internet connection, (which happens frequently with my shitty but have no where else to go provider), steam spends a couple long minutes trying to find the connection and then asks me if I would like to start in off line mode. It does take a couple of minutes the first time though.
