It's amazing that being a gamer, such as I am, I haven't once (knowingly) played with any TPU members. (If interpreted correctly, the previous sentence is the most repugnant I've recently written.)
It's been quite some time since I've played online with my close friends too. It seems coordinating everyone joining servers has become too much of a bother for me to try.
I figure the best way for me to get in a game server with the other TPUers is to join the TPU teamspeak/vent/xfire/poppycock server and say, "HEY GUYS CAN I PLAY?" I just haven't got around to doing it yet. There is also a lingering fear that TPU members will discover that I curse like a sailor in a cursing competition when I'm playing games
