Going through my installed games looking for DRM deauthorization so I can move to a new computer. I don't know what games need it, and I'll probably miss some, and this is a ridiculous waste of time. Fuck you, industry I work in!

I have to *update* Red Alert 3 in order to remove it.

The only games that you are going to have to do this in is spore, fallout 3, and red alert (all EA games you notice?). I don't think anything else has come out recently that keeps track of computer installs and that you own. Plus there is the plus that each of those has multiple installs possible and the high likelihood that in the future they will eliminate the drm ala Bioshock.

And GTA4.

It's just a shade too optimistic for me to believe that PC game companies will totally renounce DRM before I use up my 3 installs.
