Steam Allows You to Remotely Install? Since When!?

Steam summer sales. Wallets everywhere cry out in pain. I was not surprised to find myself making yet another purchase (from work. Shh.)

What DID surprise me, however, was this screen:

remotely install

You see, I happened to leave my home computer turned on this morning. I had often bemoaned any new games I bought during the day wouldn’t be installed by the time I got home. If I planned well enough, I could remote into my home PC and kick off the install.

No longer required! I will probably leave my computer on more often now, so if I make a purchase I can install games from work – ready for me to jump into as soon as I get home. (Unless it is Anno 2070 which merely installs the Ubi installer which then installs the 4 gigs of actual game later. Pfft. Ubi.)
