The problem now is that there are still some of the big networks that haven`t picked up on the idea (eg. Ipoker, Ongame), and one feels increasingly discouraged from playing their games because of the annoyance of having one that is out of sync.
I used to be cooped up in my room for hours too.
The synchronized breaks are great.
I think it may be one of the reasons for the decline in the number of players playing regularly on Ipoker.
Most of their guaranteed tournies have lost alot of value in the past month or 2.
The only games I play on Ipoker are the money added games on Paddy Power now.
