Been awhile since I got to dig into hex tcpdump but spent the time 
anyway. A UDP data segment that is 9 bytes long and only contains a "C" 
(0x43) ? And looks like to a Steam/Half-life (27015) gaming port. Not 
sure what the "C" is used for with those systems but guessing it's some 
sort of request?
